Couldn't tell ya about them, but i know first hand that installing a drop kit (i'm assuming your 65 is twin I beam) in these trucks is pretty dang simple and can be done with hand tools, just an idea to help you save some cash .

Hey, FirstTry, the site is www.bds-suspension.com At a first glance though, I didn't see any drop kits, but I will call Off-road Canada in Lethbridge, as I am in University there right now. I will let you know what I fight out.

Well, I called, and they said for the front all they do is use shorter springs, but when I asked about dropped I-beams, he said nobody he knew made em, so I told him about DJM suspension, and gave him their number, he was gonna look into it, as he could get them cheaper as a dealer. He hasn't called be back yet, and this was 3 hours ago. When/if he gets back too me I'll let you know what he says. BTW, a kit to drop a 65/66 (using shorter coils) about 3" would be about $600, but that includes dropping the rear too.
