    well it's been 2 years since i aquired my '78 K5, i have finally got everything fixed just to keep it rolling (except the skin), so now i am ready to modify. problem is all the repairs have left me short. does anyone have some lines of used stuff i could get my hands on? i am in NH and willing to travel a couple of hours (via gas miser VW) if the booty is worth it. most important on my list is a set of 6" rear springs. (i may not have much $$ but i still want it right) HELP PLEASE!

    Well you can find some excellent deals here and around the web. Also sometimes salvage yards will have some goodies. I actually scored some sweet stuff for an old mud truck (It was a F@#d [​IMG]). I have heard plenty of stories of the junkyard lift kits and such being found.

    <font color=purple> I agree.....look around and every time you talk to somebody and they don't have what you need ask them if they know who does .....you'd be surprised at how much you can find by going this route.

    Ditto - I scouted a rollbar in one of the local boneyards today - I'm going nuts waiting until they open tomorrow to see what kind of price I can get - Thankfully I've got another 6 pack of Hard Lemonade to keep the edge off[​IMG]

    Screw 6 inch rear springs. Do a Shackle flip and 2 inch blocks or a 2 inch spring...it will flex WAY better and if your resorcefull you can make the flip yourself and if you use blocks you can do the whole deal for $50


    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    I agree. My friend used a JC Whitney lowering shackle for a 6" shackle flip.
