lowering question

Postby Trevor » Sat May 19, 2012 12:32 am

Anyone know where I could get the stuff to lower the rearend of a '71 chevy c20 with leaf spring? Emailed Summit and Belteck and they dont offer anything. Any suggestions?
Thanks

They say that guy at fleetpride can do it. I have heard he is a little shady so be careful when dealing with him. I think his name is Gary or something like that. Little scrawny guy.

or you could do it the proper way and de-arch the springs.

I have a 86 chevy short wide bed. If you move the rear end on top of the spring it will drop the rear around 4 inches. With that i had to c notch my frame so the axle had some travel. The other good thing is you can add a slide o link to stop the wheel hop. I used one for a S10 had to burr grind the holes to match the u bolts. The front end has 2 inch drop spindles plus we cut some of the coil spring off too. my truck has apretty good stance now.
