  1. Is this on jackstands?
     
  2. I think it's something called "stock ride height", whatever that is...

  17. Is the Chevy bed real, or Photoshopped on?

    I've often wondered how a 59/60 would look with the Chevy bed. Looks pretty cool. :)

  21. That is a sharp-lookin' truck. Do you have interior photos?

    Also, I think a '59/'60 bumper would really finish off that truck nicely. Just a suggestion.
     
  22. Thanks, it's really just my hauler. I thought about tucking the bumper in a little though.

    Here's some interior shots from when I was still working on it.

    :D 2" drop axle, 4.5" mono spring up front. 6" mono spring out back. Added a "C" notch in the rear for more travel. I run 205/75/15 fronts and 235/75/15 rears. So you could actually lower it more with some shorter tires. But these fill the wheel wells and tuck pretty nicely.

    later,Bill
     
  30. Awesome .... good to know I can still get mine that low without going IFS ... :D

    Dropped axle is definitely in my future as well. I de-arched the springs 3" and it still rides/steers exactly like stock. Did you get any bump steer from going that low? Did you have the steering arms bent to match the axle drop?
