went pretty good until i got to installing the new springs.. they have the wrong bushings in one side..
also i dont see why everyone has a problem with the steering arm a few good whacks from my friend the bfh and it was off...
i think im beeing spoiled with the lift and air tools though
*** another thing is, waht do you guys think i should do with the sway bar? ive heard people saying theyve taken it off and never looked back.. but would it be alright for a dd?
Throw the sway bar in the trash!
I have just finished my lift and I took the sway bar off, my rig is a trail toy only. I would not recommend taking the swaybar off for good on a DD. You might want to check into ORD swaybar dicos.
The front end it is too unstable for my liking for a DD. I have 4" EZride Tuff Country springs.
Of course you could try it out and see if you can adapt to it.
I honestly think thats first person iv heard say to keep the sway bar on that wasnt running 52's... What springs are you running? I personally have owned a 80 3/4ton pickup w 6" blackdimond(i think) lift, a 79 blazer with 3leaf 6" font springs, and a 78 3/4ton suburban with 4" rancho lift, none of which i ran sway bars on. And never felt the need to put them back on either. and of coarse that is just my .02
I run mine without a sway bar and it's fine. You shouldn't be cornering that fast in a lifted truck to need a sway bar.
Dump the sway bar.. I have 4" fronts and a flip. I don't miss it at all.
wtf are the silver discs on the fender and door?! lol
looks good thaouhg nice and CLEEEAN
Magnetic trays to hold nuts and bolts?
shes clean cause ive taken off my other tires and put the stockers on, then my wheel bearing went bad and i didnt drive it much so she stayed clean.. ill change that soon
I dumped my swaybar when I went to 6 inches. I dont miss it at all and my rig is my DD.
Depends on what you're comfortable daily driving I guess
This is my daily driver on 40's a 4" lift and no sway bar
I'm driving this its on 38.5s and 4" of lift no sway bar. I say toss it and don't look back
whats up with the pass front tire? need air? nice truck
didnt you have a flatbed? if so why did you get rid of it?!?
Yea they needed some air but that was the day I mounted them and I took the pics before I even drove her. Shes all filled up and DDing
Dumped the sway bar - scared the hell out of me combined with the bump steer. Changed to x-over, best thing. No sway bar, no bump steer, no steering stabilzer.
Do what you are confortable doing.
1990 k5 frame and front clip with a CUCV cab and mini-flatbed. Also had severe cracks in the frame...
New truck is a 1979 (no emmisions! ) K30 frame, drivetrain (except for my 1990 350), original cab with same old 1990 jimmy front clip...I love this front clip so much
It's a shame, I'm from Mass and I can't even give away the rust free CUCV cab out here . I was trying to sell the mini-flatbed for a while for $100 ($300 worth of steel there) but no takers...will most likeyl be cut up for projects like rocksliders and the rest sent off to scrap.
However the future holds an even COOLER, more BAD-ASS, BIGGER flatbed that will trump everyting the mini-flatbed ever hoped to be...stay tuned over the summer.
I think my truck is easier to drive without the swaybar...
