    very extremely interesting

    a trailing arm rear 4x4, humm

    front coil 4x4 GM truck, humm


    how very different,

    too bad cant see pics of the front suspension better

    damn...

    but really cool to hear about

    so what did he do then ? took a ford front axle and put under ? retained the original gm upper arms ?

    he using ford or gm coils ?

    trying to remember how ford front 4x4 suspension is,

    gonna have to go look under stepdads 77 f150 4x4 he is selling and check that out,

    hum,

    is ford front axle setup really that good ?

    i dont like th eida of torsion bars too much, geometry seems a bit off, i commonly see fords with problem of tops of wheels sitting way in or way out too far,,
    i dont like seeing that, GM never do that, at all, ever,
