Do you have a link for the camber alignment plate? my truck will never be a daily drive again so its not a big deal to me if the alignment is slightly off but i dont want it to be noticible looking at it. Im really shootin for a six inch drop but it doesn't look like its gonna happen.

and for posting pictures i have no clue but you can just link to them

it looks like 5 has been done, Im doing the drop beams and then looking for drop springs. It appears another 2 inches can be acheived with drop springs but i assume it goes along with alignment issues. My F150 appears to sit a bit high so im shooting for 6" as it looks like im starting higher than a lot of guys that have done it

Thanks man, I'll have pics of my other baby up here pretty soon. Just as low as my extended cab but it's a single cab with a 347 stroker in it. Same year too.

Here is my 92. It has DJM Dream Beams up front and a 5" flip in the rear. I have a shackle hanger kit that I will be putting on as soon as it shows up that will bring the rear up an inch. It's hard to tell in this pick, but the rear is setting almost an inch lower. I'm also going to put the stock 15"s and a new set of tires on pretty soon. I like the 20's, just wanting to give her the old school look back.

Yes it is. It has almost 30" tall tires. I hate rubber band tires so I put meaty tires on when I bought the 20's. It makes it look higher than it really is. The tires are as tall as the stock 235/75/15's. Here is the before pick. See all the air between the fenders and tires...Huge difference from the first pic.Click the image to open in full size.

I think 20s look great on these trucks. But everyone is different.

I hope to have either 20" boss 335s in black and chrome or black 20" gen 2 replicas one day.

See post #7 5/7 drop on boss 335s. I love his truck.
