Hello all. New to the tread. Just got a new toy a week ago and was researching how to lower it and found this great site. Picked it up from a friend for $300!!

DJM 3" & 4" drop. I just swapped to 15x10" rear wheels and finished my customized '60's hub caps! I love the look!

Just started the lowering process. New wheels and tires today. Cut one coil out of the front. Not enough, so DJM beams will now be installed. Planning half hangar flip in the rear.

The Process almost complete. Here is a photoshop version of the finished product.

460 4 Speed with DJM (the worst company I have ever dealt with) beams. I'll be moving to the back to do a front hanger flip next.

Soh Your truck is very nice. This is my baby after the half hangar flip and 1 coil out of the front. Next is looking for the best company to work with on lowering beams. Sounds like DJM might not be the people to go with.

Your truck looks great! What size are your tires? I have 15x10 in the rear with 275/60s and mine are so close to the fender well that when I lower it, I don't think they will tuck. I may have to change wheels and go with a different backspace. What backspace are your wheels?
