nice rides! i built lowriders for 7 years and never got a squarbody to do.. i have seen a few that look good but these r really nice.. i built an 01 bodydropped with 20s and it turned out nice.. how do i post pics? ill put them up if anyone can explain.. lol
The suspensions are actually identical....The alignment issue is only REALLY noticeable with the REALLY low truck (Bagged, etc) and when the steering components are pretty worn....
And they make Camber Alignment plates for the trucks with REALLY bad issues....but its best to start with new steering components and a good aligned truck....
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
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.
