**UPDATE** This will be not only the thread outlining the lowering of this F-100 using primarily factory components, but also the subsequent build into a land speed competition "production pickup". When I'm done with the chassis, and some other periferal work, it will head back down to Tim's (mctim64) place to get the cage, a paint job, and final tech requirements installed, as well as a ferocious stroker Y-block mill. Regarding the lowering, let me just say that the search function is your friend regardless if you're a FNG or have been around from the beginning. I had found the following threads to use as reference, you might like them as well: http://jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=153730&highlight=how+lowered http://jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=398754&highlight=64+lowering Here's the beginning. A solid, rust-free CA truck that had been holding down a tomato garden. The goal is a 6-7" drop in front, and a fairly aggressive rake. For those of you that skip to the end of the story, here's where we are right now. All I ask is that you read before you ask a lame question that's already been answered. Lot's of helpful information in the following posts, hopefully it will help many of you with your projects. While this is a '62, most of the information and techniques will be very similar, if not typical to a '57-64 F-100 as well. Keep in mind there are a few things that you'll probably see that aren't advisable for daily use, but that's not what we're doing here. This is just a small installment of a production class pickup for land speed racing that Tim McMaster and I are building. It goes without saying that if anyone has questions about what I did here, or plan to do, just ask. No secrets here, and I'm happy to share.
