This is mod list so far:

Eaton posi, 4,10 gears (front and rear diff's)

Rear diff flip-kit (rear diff moved to top of springs) and frame mini-notch

Front drop spindles

This should bring it down another 2-3 inches in the front, and 4 in the back, from where it was  cheers

Removed, rear bumper, hitch, & spare tire. New steel rollpan


Pulled the bed, removed rear axle, gas tank, charcoal canister, wiring. Stripped the frame to bare steel, ground & sand-blasted any rusty spots, cut the frame & installed boxing plates, then everything got 2 coats of SEM Rustshield

I'm in the middle of a 4/6 drop on my 79 c10.
The damn leaf spring bolts are fighting me the whole way. Still have one more side to do,
You make this look easy!

Actually it probably was easy since it doesn't have 33 years of rust working against it! Mad Mad

Can't wait to see how this silverado turns out!

Thanks, and yeah I don't think I can get the truck that low, but it should be the lowest 4wd around ( I still may have to drive through snow)

So, I got a lot more done on the truck.

Rear diff is in, ON TOP of the leafsprings (dropping it 6 inches). New e-brake cables, brake shoes, rear shocks, resurfaced and painted the drums.



Found a used front diff with the correct 4.10 ratio. Disassembled, replaced all the bearings, and installed updated seals.









Painted it (with SEM), install updated vent cover.





Put it in this Saturday, bled the brakes, then flushed all the brake fluid.






Here is the height difference, stock and now (still need to do the spindles in the front)





And the whole truck will come down another 1 1/2" when I put the 20's back on Shocked

Yes it would be.

My guess would be atleast $4,500 in labor by now (parts and body-work not included)........ pale

So I swung by to visit Al today and shoot the shit for a bit and got to check out his sexy rear end...




And then it turned out to be my lucky day... Al needed a hand getting the Bulldog down to the Nashua shop. So I figured, what the Hell? Why not?

Yeah. That turned out great.


Smooth as buttah. Wink

He can elaborate if he wants, but that smell is still in my nose!!! Razz

Installed offset (camber correction) moog bushings, and HD moog ball-joints (installed in opposite direction to flip arm & give better ball-joint angle)

Painted and installed Belltech drop spindles

Sandblasted and painted shields

New front brakes and rotors









New vs old spindles

All the time Laughing

I just pick a project (or piece of a project), and try to complete something everyday.

This one has had a lot of pieces, lowering, gear swap, body-work. Lots of mods all at once Mad
