    do you have the "Death wobble?" did you do anything different to your steering? mine will be about as low as yours and ive heard bad things about this on those trucks.

    You mean tie rod drops? I was under the impression you would have to heat and bend the sterring arm a few degrees. I have 2.5" drop axle I still need to install in my 58

    Very nice...I'm digging both of your rides. It just proves less is more. These trucks have been overlooked for too long.

    Sorry to bring this back again, didn't see an answer, maybe you missed it.

    What if anything is done to the front besides the drop axle? Got any pictures of the front suspension/steering?

    Thanks

    Again, awesome truck.
