Glad to see you got a rear end! And with disc brakes. Good luck getting it all mounted up! If you want to lower the rear some more could always leave the perches on the bottom. I think it'll look good with offset rims in the rear. What kind of rims were you thinking?

doing the axle flip was a thought at first but id need to notch the frame and i dont want to get quite into that. Wish i could slam it right to the ground but i think that would be a little much for my experience and budget. For wheels ill bw getting black or chrome steelies with chrome baby moon caps

Ahh I see, also would have to find a way to lower the front enough to match too. And with a solid axle that's a whole new can of worms. The reverse rims will look good!

Im not sure how much drop ill need in the front to get a nice stance out of it since the rear had 30" farm tires haha ill probably use a drop axle from Sid and if i need more drop ill take a leaf or two out.

only a bit of work done lately, cant do much more without a big order of parts that i need (leaf springs, spring perches, shocks, tires) also need to get a little sand blaster to do the inner frame rails and rear end. The new spring perch location has been mesured and doesnt leave me much room although it should work.

with this brake setup ill have to run at least 17" wheels in the rear. Perches will be pretty close to the backing plates but will fit just fine.

Why do you have run 17s? I got 15x10s on the rear of the pontiac with the same brake setup

Theres only about 1/4-1/2" of space between the caliper and rim

I think what should be fine, unless something goes very wrong the rim and the caliper will never have movement toward each other. A bent rim might be the only way they could ever contact.

Tho.... 17" steelies would look pretty fricken cool on there

For anyone needing springs for a project www.eatondetroitspring.com is the place to go! I couldn't have had it easier. They offer springs for hundreds of thousands of different cars and trucks with an option of up to 3" lift or lowering. Not only was it super easy get everything that I wanted but the price is very good. A local spring shop was charging 500$+ to rebuild one spring pack and I got a pair of 3" lowering and smoother riding leaf packs for just over 600$. Very impressed with the service too, one of the employees; Mickey called me and offered me if I wanted smoother riding springs. Overall I think this is the only place I'd order springs from, can't wait for them to get here now.

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything, havent been able to do much without parts! Still waiting on springs but finally found a little sandblaster and started doing the rear end, here's a picture of the difference it makes

Well guys, lots of work got done since the last time I posted. The 8.8 rear end is sandblasted, primed and painted, new leafs from Eaton Detroit springs are installed, spring perches are measured and ready for welding and all new brakes are installed. Does anyone know if there's a such thing as spacer for the u joint flange? The stock drive shaft is about .5" too short. This thing is really starting to take shape, quite proud of myself

Looking good! Thinking about doing a 8.8 swap in my 56 merc. If I can find one in the right gear ratio and for the right price. Keep up the good work!

I got the last 8.8 in my town from a scrap yard for 400$ with 3:55 gears, compared to other prices I've seen it's a little much but quite happy with how the swap is going so far.

Quite positive the dropped axle is what I want for this truck, just finishing up the rear of the truck and then moving on to the front.

Does anyone know any solutions to wheels rubbing inside the fenders when turning because of lowering? Narrower axle?

If its rubbing on the inside of the fender lip a different wheel offset would help. Also a steering stop would keep them from turning that far. Sucks for turning radius tho
