Ratster reminded me that I haven't done an update on my project for awhile, so here are a few pics. I haven't had alot of time or money do work on the Essex this summer, but I'm back at it again. I had the frame sandblasted and got my new front end parts, so it was time to do a mock up. If you recall, the truck had a poorly installed Corvair IFS under it when I got it... The new drop I-beam setup... I moved the axle centerline forward a bit as I never really liked where it was with the 'Vair front. Today I bolted up a front fender to see how it lined up. I think it looks better. Opinions? Old... New... Question for the experts... Once I get the rest of the truck assembled, how much lower should the front end drop with the weight on it? It has a Posie's Superslide spring and the axle is currently blocked at ride height. Thanks!
