Looking for pictures and info of how much of a drop,and what parts used to achieve the new stance,things like if you used spindles or springs or both.Blocks or hangers out back,and finally what size tires front and rear.Oh,and were sway bars added.

Trying to get a more comprehensive list of what it takes to arrive at a certain look.My '96 is stock height for now,and i've been thinking about changing that.

I used 2 "drop spindles on the front and a 4" hanger kit out back. these are all Belltech parts but i got them all off a donor truck as well as a bunch of other stuff for $400. My son and I split the purchase cost of the truck and then raped it for almost everything. then sold the parts we didnt use and the rest of what was left and actually came out $300 ahead not including the parts we took for ourselves.

Tire size is 245 55 18 here is the link to a bunch of pics of it

Nice stance!
Hows the mono leaf feel under it?
It plants the rear pretty good with those and the Caltracs. They ride ok, but with the Caltracs adjusted up it's rough no matter what. Also I have Bilstien shocks which are pretty stiff.
