Lowering a 1971

What's the easiest way to lower(1"-2") a 1971 F100 with out spending too much and not chopping or cutting up the truck?

You want a sticky mess try dropping a F250 4" in the front and 6" in the rear plus still maintain front camber and load carrying capacity in the rear with leaf springs no airbags.

I was thinking (danger here) why not use the taller spring towers off later trucks (1972) on a short spring tower truck (1967-67) then cut the forged "I" beam end for a little longer drop on a donor beam and add this to your existing beam for more of a drop plus a correction of the camber? "V" notch to a pencil point at this joint then Tig weld it fully until it looked stock then have it retempered to stock beam specs? In the rear invert the spring pad mounts below the axle and reweld with the correct pinion angle, shorten the driveshaft as needed. Shave down the bump stops for maximum suspension travel, this way you will have a lowered truck that can still carry a load and still daily drive it. This a mild lowering not a slammed truck with air bags I must add. Ideas without spending money on those high dollar kits that some must have.

I think so but I'm not 100%. There is a user on here, FORD141 he has an F250 and put the F100 beams and stuff on it. He also converted to the 1/2 ton spindles too. I don't know if you have to do that, but you could try to check with him and see.

http://airbagit.com/product_info.php...oducts_id=5304 these from AIM are listed for F100,F150,F250. hope that helps

IBE-FO6579 $489.00

1965 - 1979
Make: FORD
Model: F100,F150,F250LD

That is one sweet ride. I have a stock 1966 Ford that I would like to lower as well. What exactly did you do to get your awesome truck, to that ride height? And what size tires are you running?

My '71 began it's life as an F-250, converted it all to F-100 suspension front and rear from a donor '73. Takes a bit of work to get things to fit, only difficult part was getting the right combination of springs and hangers on the rear. Pics in my gallery if you're interested.
