    I used Performance on Line about 8 years ago on a '64 Cutlass I had. I sold the project before finishing it though. IIRC they used BAW parts for steering components, so I can't vouch for longevity. I know the upper control arms I purchased for my tall spindle kit were a good quality.

    Those first pictures I posted are the OEM overloads on my K30. I believe Hellwig makes some that clamp on.

    At this point, it would have been easier to bag the truck front and rear, then to go through what you did with Summit.

    Agreed. I finally cancelled my order because it still has they perpetual 2 month until it ships note on it. I’m currently in search of a set of 19.5” wheels and then I’ll use 3” lowering spindles. I’m still under the impression I’d like to drive the thing and not worry about the weather so I’m trying not to give up my inner fenders or have to cut my box sides.

    Ditch the front inner fenders. You could easily make your own or fabricate some out of trailer fenders. Buy one fender, cut it in half....and now you have two!
