Man that's nice.
Sittin' just right too!
nice rake! I have the missing leafs but the axle is next hopefully.
How many leafs did you take out? Do you have bumpstops still in? Do you bottom out any? It looks like I'm not going to have a lot more suspension travel vs. my old mono leafs. I haven't driven it much yet so not sure how it's going to ride.
hey what size tires are those they look good?
I'm running 215/75/15 in the front and 235/75/15 in the rear.
My 52 was set up the same way with leafs removed, it rode like a tank and bottomed out on any little crack in the road. I drove it thar way for a little over a year and then to save my back and kidneys, I put a MII front in it with air bags, now I can ride in comfort and still be super low for shows and cruise ins. That was the best investment to my truck so far, next is to air bag the rear and get a true caddilac type ride!
I took my truck out for the first test drive this weekend. I thought it rode pretty good and much better than the mono leafs! I didn't feel any bottom out. But I also "shaved" my bumpstops so there is about half as much rubber left! Now sure I'd love to put IFS with bags but that isn't in the budget for awhile!
it looks bad ass.
How wide are your rims?
15x7 on the front and 15x8 on the rear. 205/75/15 tires on the front and 235/75/15 on the rear
