I like it. It rides a lot better now than it did before and its noticeably quicker on bottom end with the Proxes. I did it for the track and I was tired of the stiff ride in the front end from my coil springs being stretched with the 2.5" spacers.Do you like the ride 08stroker ? whats was your reason to go back down? I have thought about it since SmokinJoe did his truck . And the plasma is the tool to use when cutting , that is one of the tools i always find a project for to use !
i would really like to see pics of this it sounds easy enough that it would be good to do just for the strip and then put the leveling kit and blocks back in for normal drivingPut 2WD or even GAS 4WD front springs in it for about a 1-2" lower than stock stance...no clearance issues...and remove the stock 2" block and either replace with a 1" or no block at all depending on if you want it level.
It will be bout the same height at a 2Wd in the front and course sit level..so lower than a stock 2wd in the rear...you will clear all tires up to about a 33" meaning you could run LARGE wheels and small tires and have no issues.
I was going to do this to mine, and had it all planned out with measurements...etc...and it would have worked perfect and given a nice street stance without looking like a "lowered truck" really, but somewhere I ended up going the opposite direction
thats actually a great idea also your not too low but your low enough to make a diffrence. i was contimplating this the other day having a leveling kit for the street and figure some kind of lowered set up for the dragsWhat i was honestly think is running a cut spring, then running a leveling kit spacer for the street, when i go sled pulling ill take the spacer out for a 2.5 inch drop in the front, run a 1 inch block in the back and it should sit level on the street.
33s are the way to go, i should be running a smaller wheel so i have more sidewall, but they do pretty darn good.I'm just curious how close they are to the inner fender. I've got big mud flaps on cause I have to drive on gravels and don't want to kill my paint. But I do have a TEI spacer I could throw in with stock springs for 1" of lift in the front. How do you like the 33s for pulling? If I go smaller, I think I'm going to go with BFG ATs, something that will perform great for pulling, and ok on the track.
Let me know what you end up going with, for now i think my truck is going to stay the way it is, there are alot of pulls this summer, probably just going to cruise it around with the ass end in the air untill after pulling season is done.thats actually a great idea also your not too low but your low enough to make a diffrence. i was contimplating this the other day having a leveling kit for the street and figure some kind of lowered set up for the drags
