Phil_69Ford,
My wheels are Wheel Vintiques 62 series purchased from Summit Racing. The front 15x8's are 4" backspace and the rear 15x10's are 4.5" backspace. My rear tires are 275/60/15. I have almost an inch of clearance inside and outside, so they're pretty well centered in the wheel well. If it makes a difference, I have the factory Ford 9" rear axle, not a Dana rear. I made a wire template of the profile of a 295 tire, and it looks like it would possibly clear, if I decide to go wider next time I buy tires.

Care to elaborate?


On second thought, I'm sure I have dealt with worse companies, but at the time it seemed pretty crappy. I don't see me doing business with them again though.


I ordered a set of beams from Summit and when they were delivered the box was beat to death. When it was time to install, I discovered the tierod extention was missing. Called Summit, they called DJM, DJM said they were shipping the parts, and never did. This went on for a couple of weeks. I called DJM, they said they would ship them on Friday, Friday came and went, and no Ford parts were sent. DJM basically said I was lying and there was no way the beams arrived without the extension. I guess there is a huge black market demand for F100 Tie Rod extensions. :hd: This went on for about a month. I should have sent the beams back and reordered, letting them eat the shipping, but I thought it would be cheaper and quicker just to get the extensions. My complaint isn't with the parts not being there, but with them telling me they would ship them 4 separate times and never doing so. I would have bought the parts if necessary, but they acted like I couldn't even buy them.

I ended up ordering the extension from AIM and I like it better. I have the old DJM style on my other truck and the AIM extension seems stronger to me.

Got the rear hanger flipped. 8)

I ordered my DJMs from the factory. It allowed me to get them bare, I can't stand the Silvervein paint. All of the parts came in the box except the special wrench for the tie-rod extenders. I contacted them and they sent me one right away. Good customer service, IMO.

DJM drop shipped the beams I assume. However, Summit is ultimately responsible for fulfilling the order since that is with whom it was placed.

You mentioned flipped shackles. The stock shackles or a kit. And how much did u cut springs? And could a set of springs 2 inch smaller do the same. Truck has a great look. Love it

Calvin, your truck is very similar to mine, what size tyre and rim combo are you running in the back?

Cheers, Davie.

PS Ignore my very British spelling of tyre, I'm in Scotland! :-)

I started this thread years ago and thought it only be fitting to post up a pic of my new lowered bump...
