    There was an orange one in a few of the mags a few years back. He had coil overs on all corners. Way before I saw any on trucks other than monster trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    the trucks from 67 - 72 (2wd) with eaton rear ends had coil springs you might check them out for ideas or still brackets from the rear.

    Arq: there was a blue blazer (69-72) that had coils on all corners in a magazine a few years ago. He had converted his rear suspension to that of a 2 wheel drive suburban and made something for the front. Sorry that I don't remember all the details but I will go looking through my old mags and see if I can locate the article.
