    So here is what I started off with. It's had it's ups and long downs but here u go. The truck has been in my family for as long as I can remember. My dad drove it for a long time then let it sit. I drove it to high school a few times with the heated springs. Then it sat again. Started body work on bed then the bed stayed in primer along with a couple of other spots. ( like in picture) then I decided to bag it then came the Porterbuilt Dropmember along with many other parts. I came close to rolling on its own power then I tore it down once again due to engine problems. So this is where I am as of now. THE ReBUILD!!!!!!

    I painted these today. When I bought them I mocked everything up then they got surface rust from moisture. They are CPP 2.5 drop spindles along with their disc brakes and rotors. Keeping it 6 lug for now. Might remove the dust shield....let's see.

    Nice! :cool: I had a 1965 long bed stepside and loved it. I don't know if you have room under there but on my 65 a front and rear set of Helwig anti sway bars made it handle great.

    Thanks!.... My control arms have mounting for a sway bar, eventually I will run one but most likely it will be "Porterbuilt" brand to match the other components I'm running of his.

    Yeah^^^^ I did about a 3/4 dismantle last time now I have to do it right this time. Might as well so I don't have to do it in the future. Or will I?.....
