Re: Front spring differences
Thanks for the info. I thought about the rear springs, but want to go with at least 6" though. I hear you on the build. I too am in the gathering stage right now, like a squirel collecting nuts for the long winter. The parts are piling up in the garage and I am itching to tear into it, but completing the house so we can move in comes first. But we'll be in in the next month and I told the wife once we're in, I'm off to the shop for some much need wrenching and relaxation! This general contractor stuff and a fill in jack of all trades has made for one hell of a summer.
So far my '86 sits with these parts waiting to be fitted up:
14 Bolt FF, Dana 44, rear suspension is shackle flip and 2 inch lift block, Front is 6" springs which need to be purchased yet, and the 383 stroker is coming out of my '56 truck project that has been put on hold and being to dropped in. That in addition to all the goodies like KC lights, fuel cell, cb, etc., that need to be pulled off my recently retired Jimmy. It's just waiting now to go up on the jackstands and start getting stripped.
