    Hey todd, you have a cad. 500 in your truck right? How's that working out for you? Does it really move the truck?

    The short answer is yeah, it's a 500...and yeah, it really moves...It's a '76 engine that's stock with an Edelbrock intake/carb. I'm glad I didn't go any higher numerical rear end ratio (3.25:1 posi) when I went through the 9". It's the same ratio as the Cad it came out of, just pushing around about 1,000 pounds less...burns the tires at 5 mph or 50 mph...sorta light in the ass...

    I just picked up a pair of 15x10's and a pair of 285/70 BFG's for the rear, so it should keep the power on the ground a bit more soon:D

    My biggest battle has been with the front coil springs. Having a helluva time getting a stiff enough rate. Started out with V6 Mustang II, then V8 Mustang II, now I have a set out of an '86 Mustang 5.0. Those are still too mushy, so I got a freebie set of '94 Mustang Cobra coils...we'll see how they work after I lose a coil...

    Here's ours..I posted it some time back on the C10 thread.
    Last week we put this old topper on it. Topper was stored in a barn for over 30 yrs.
    It's about the correct era.

    What a transformation NITMARE...just went back and looked at your build process...looks great!

    FWIW, mine still has the 235/75 front tires on a 5.5" rim, and they rub at full wheel lock during a bump...not too bad though. I just picked up some 15x7's for the front, and will be installing 215/75 tires for a little more clearance. The back will be getting 15x10's with 285/70's in the next couple of weeks...my rear springs must be well-worn, because I did the same process as you did, and mine seems noticeably lower (my pumpkin pokes through the bed floor about 1/2" unloaded):
