    I traded a gutted non running blazer and a set of boggers for this truck, it's sporting a new 383 and when I say slammed I mean riding the bump stops slammed. I'll tell ya though this thing is fast especially after driving a lifted long bed k20 around for so long. this thing flat hauls ass even with crappy 3.08's (soon to be replace with 3.73's and a spool).

    some time ago long before I got the truck someone cut a few coils out of the front springs. it rides like crap lemme tell ya...bell tech springs and drop spindles are on the way. it sits about 7 inches lower than stock now with the cut springs, with the lowering springs (1-2" drop) and the spindles (3"drop) it should sit about level which will look alot better than it does now, not to mention ride way better too.

    I just don't get the whole lowered truck thing. But if I was going to do it, I think a tubed rear end would be in order. Narrowed rear axle, 4 link rear suspension, and some major meats tucked up under there !!!!!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
