Met up with Karlin in Tigard today to tackle project "moar low."

Image

Bye bye leaf springs
Image

New leaf spring setup
Image

Lowered the front more as well. Turns out I was sitting on the bumpstops
Image

Image

We found a friend a block over :thumbs:

Were you wondering about the missing high beams before? Was working on DIY amber high beams. Ratsu...NW Datsuns style!
Image

All cleaned up and done! Going to tackle lowering the rear more once I can find some smaller tires. Thinking 185/195 series.

Did you clock the torsion bars to lower it, or just turn the bolts?

Your truck is sick. Don't paint that shit.

Just turned the bolts.

Now I need the low profile Energy Suspension bumpstops. Gotta do some hunting.

You need to reclock your bars.
Get some of the ride quality back.

KYB Gas-A-Just Pinto shocks up front, and done!

How do you reclock the bars oh wise one?

Already have Gas-A-Just's up front. Not Pintos but the ride isn't too bad for how low I am. I've definitely driven more uncomfortable cars.
