Re: How about some pics of Static Dropped C-10's

Great thread, I called and ordered a 4.5 and 6 drop kit this morning and then put it on hold thinking I need a 5.5 and 7 to go with my 20x8.5 255/40r20 and 20x10 295/40r20. I have looked at a lot of trucks with the same size drops and wheels but the stance looks differant. Can anyone explain this or tell me if I am going to have a problem with the setup I am planning on putting togather? Thanks

plan is to tub it over 20x14s in the future..... just a beater for now..
What did you cut off the coils? One wrap? Those fronts rub at all?
Thats the same configuration I've got in the front now and am trying to sort out what tires would match well with the 295s and work well without having to raise the front back up a bit

We were told by the PO they were 68 parts. We have seen a couple things on the truck that makes us think the marker lights were filled in ..... Both doors do not have holes to mount the rear view mirrors. The tailgate seems to be too smooth.
