CPP Rear crossmember and drop info needed!

My dad is in the process of rebuilding his 67. He just got his crossmember in from CPP and was wondering if anyone had some pics of how they installed it or if anyone has bought one. He also ordered a 4/5" drop kick and was wanting some pics of guys trucks with the same drop combo so he can find some wheels that will fit and look good. All the info would be greatly appreciated thanks. Also looking to buy a underbed gas tank. He was looking at the LMC trucks kit. Anyone esle have some good options.

You might get a quicker or more accurate reply in the suspension section of this board. Didn't the CPP stuff come with a good install diagram? I've had problems with their stuff too. They always make it look so easy.

Are you talking about the trailing arm crossmember?

If your looking for a good quality under bed tank go to our Vendor Marketplace. There are at least two supportng Vendors here that offer custom built tanks.

Look in the Custom Classic Trucks March 2012 edition.They show with lots of pics the install.IIRC CG asked the same question the other day,actually the day I read the article.
The 47-present Chevrolet and GMC Truck Message Board Network,it's owners,moderators,members,and associates of any type should not be held responsible for my opinion.
