Hey everybody, just bought myself this truck, what a stout unit!! Rebuilt engine really pulls, powertrain is awesome. I am thinking of lifting it, but my only concern is the trailing arms. I did a superlift on a 76 ( which I found out afterwards I needed to buy the whole 78- steering setup), and the drop brackets for the trailering arms was not low enough and the thing had negative caster!! That made for a very unpleasant driving experience. I used the offset bushings properly, and still had -2.0 degrees both sides. Does anyone know of a kit that does not have this problem??
