    Sorry I'm late, wheels are 15x8 4" backspace, tires are 255/60/15, 3" drop coils in front and flip kit in back, all from Western Chassis..

    What is your truck's front wheel size, backspacing, and tire size? Also what parts did you use to drop it?

    Thanks, Mike

    Cut one coil on the front that will give you 2", you could do shackles/hangers on the back that won't affect the ride.

    I have an 87 c10 swb. It has a 5.7 with an auto tranny. I want to lower it front and rear. Maybe lower 2" in the front and 3 or 4" in the rear. It has 20s on it. I like the tire/wheel combo. Any suggestions on lowering that will help me keep a decent ride. Thanks!
