Re: Lets see pics raked,lowered and satin paint jobs

block in rear will raise it, you have to flip the axle before you can add blocks. Meaning instead of axle under leaf springs it will be on top of leaf springs. Heres some pictures of mine will get new ones soon, Its lower now in front

Heres mine

yeah, i was really thinking about the rake so i considered raising the rear end like that, i was not aware you have to flip the axle, and i have no idea what that entails is it better to go a different route?

Re: Lets see pics raked,lowered and satin paint jobs

I think it would look odd with blocks in the rear to raise it and a coil cut in front. as it is now it has a small rake at factory height. My truck currently has 3 inch drop spindles in front with 2 inch cpp drop coils. In the rear i have a 2 inch drop shackle and a few leafs removed. But i am going to flip the axle with a full leaf pack and add a cnotch. will land up having a 5/7 drop

Dig the side pipes!! I don't care what people think, they're still cool.

I think what you want is to cut a coil in front and use a 2" shackle in back. That will lower both ends about 2" but the rear will still be higher than the front by an inch or so. Then use a taller tire in the back, maybe a 255/70 in back and a 235/70 in front. Raising the back with a block is going to look silly IMO.

Re: Lets see pics raked,lowered and satin paint jobs

for a gift My buddy borrowed my truck and had A local muffler shop build the true duel side pipes, no cat no muffler nothing.. he used 3 inch pipe and i wrapped the pipes myself. I did not care about burning my leg but my girl at the time did haha
