Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

Just a two inch drop in the rear ...might not have to change...front maybe a another issue...rear shock angle even at stock height is still going to be in the 35 to 38 degree range...it was not a good design in my mind...

Don't worry I have been known to hijack threads before including ones I start! LOL

Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

Actually got the tires on it today!



Sits a bit lower than I expected or I am having trouble remembering how low it sat previously.



On another note... for those still running drum brakes you may have noticed that when swapping to aftermarket aluminum wheels that the factory studs are a bit short. When you install them there isn't much thread available to get enough engagement for the lug nuts.
Just for reference the amount of engagement should be equal to the diameter of the stud... 7/16" stud = 7/16" of thread engagement and so on, at a minimum.
Well, in going through the front end on my truck I replaced all the studs along with the bearings and races (that was an adventure!). The Dorman brand stud for my '65, #610-186 is about an 1/8" longer underhead length than the "original" ones I removed.
It's not enough to cause problems with the wheel seating up correctly though.

To further ensure that the wheels are properly mounted I use and highly recommend what is commonly known in the industry as an "ET Lugnut" shown here:

http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/hubconv/hubconv-26a.jpg

This style still has the 60* conical seat for the wheel but adds a small "shank" that allows more thread engagement. Obviously if you're running the old "Slot" style mags most of them required a shank mag lug nut with washer so the ET lug is not applicable but if you're running a wheel with a thick hub and conical seat lugs this is the hot ticket.
Sadly, most people in tire shops have no idea what this is.

Hope this helps somebody from having a wheel come off!

Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

P.S. anybody have a trick for installing the rubber snubbers in the lower control arm?

No tricks. But I'm impressed how your outdoor work area is more clean than my garage.
