    ORD Custom 4\" Front Spings........45\" / 9-Leaves

    OK guys, just brainstorming here.....

    Now that I've started making fender mods to my K5 to keep the "stock looking" fender opening ( Look Here: ) I have considered lowering the truck about an inch to get rid of the excessive wheel gap, and lower the CG in the process.

    I spoke with Dr. Watson and there's no easy way to modify the existing springpack to lower it....it will probably just be cheaper to start over with a new 3" lift design.

    Is there anyone who already knows they want a really soft 4" springpack for their 1st Gen? If I know there is someone interested in my existing springs, it will make it easier for me to "spend-ahead" for a the new ones. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
