lean

mine leans to the drivers side. Whatever you do don't heat the springs or try to remove leafs, I have friends that have spent more fixing stuff that gets screwed up that way. Do it the right way, have a good alignment shop set it up and there will be no worries.

No problem going over speedbumps.

Here is a picture I had after I dropped my 86 with a DJM 3/5 drop. Picture was before alignment so excuse that. (235/60/15 tires)



I think the radius arm brackets are the lowest point of the truck. I measured for someone on here a while ago. Ill see if I can find the thread.

Here is a video I have of it. You can see how much clearance you have with the 3/5.

rcruz : I would not recommend 5" drop on the front. Going to be hard to get aligned and only going to have like 1 inch of suspension travel. You will also need a pretty big C notch in the frame in the back for 7" of drop if you do 5" in front.

Where did you get your 2" drop shackles?

I don't actually have them on my truck. I have front leveling springs to raise the front to make it level. I do know a few people that have the rear lowering shackles. I think Ebay may have the best deal on them.

What about a 6/8 drop. Yes 6/8.

I have dropped many of my friends c10's and now I want to drop my 96 f150 Rwd XLT I have some 22" rims on it. It's a cammed out 302. And it's just a street truck. But I know you can cut the springs on the front like a regular spring then you just grind down the edge of the top of the coil so you can bolt it back on. But I'm looking for some spindels that will drop it about 3 inches. And I can do a 7 inch flip kit in the rear and add in a 1 inch lowering block in the rear. My 22"s actually lifted my truck which is why I'm going with a 6/8

What shocks did you use on your truck all the way around? Thanks

You know, the last post before yours was almost two years ago and these people have probably moved along to other things. In the dark blue band above each post window has the post date over to the left side.

Just thought you might know.

BTW, most drop kits can be bought with shocks that fit/work or the kit will tell you what shocks to use.

We have a 93 f150. Where do we find a good set of drop shackles that you mentioned? Interested to see how that would look when done.
