    \'75 3/4 ton 2wd suspension ?

    I'm interested in getting a '75 3/4 ton longbed that is 2wd. I was wondering if the front axle was solid or not. i was thinking it is but not entirely sure. the one i'm looking at buying has a perkins diesel so its pretty badass /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif. I was just trying to find like a 4 inch lift to get just for looks and stuff. thanks for your input. and sorry if its a stupid question.

    some manufacturers kept old school designs under light duty trucks for a while longer

    the last light duty GM truck 2wd solid front axle was in 59

    then from 60 to 62 it was IFS with torsion bars

    then in 63 it was all new IFS with coil springs and remained the same through '87('91)

    this applies to 1/2 3/4 and 1 tons 2wd

    What kind of lift are you looking for a suspension lift for 2wd or a body lift? To answer you early questions in a past post I am still going to college here in College Station but I am always home on the weekends to work. With all the rain I have been play with my friends 3/4 ton 4 wd sub at his place because I sold my old truck but started a new one. We have had a lot of fun below his house in some of his mud holes. I will have to get some pictures next week because I have finals this week and will not be going home. Sorry for the long post.
