Re: 1968 C10 Suburban

Thanks! I still think it needs a little "altitude" adjustment. Maybe a couple three inches lower ?

I used a 71-72 TH400 kickdown switch by making a bracket for the firewall side of my accelerator pedal assy.

I bought a set of rear springs to lower a pickup two inches, I think with the added weight of a suburban it may lower it more. Anyone have any experience or opinions ?

Re: 1968 C10 Suburban

A C10 Suburban is 800 to 1200 lbs more than a comparable pickup depending on options. So my guess is that it should sit about 1 inch lower than a pickup with the same springs would.

Thanks , That's what I was hoping for . My 67 Step side had 4" drop springs and it would bottom out sometimes. I would like to avoid that if I can.
