just gettin deeper on to this site - i have an intro posted but that's about it. have a 57 short stepside i am trying to repair all the prior owners "upgrades" to make road worthy again. i've gone through a bunch of this thread but didn't notice info about your coil-overs on the front. do you have a link or a journal that discuss that mod and the whys behind it?
i have a 350 in now but going to a newer 4.3 v-6 with FI - i know, i know - more wimpy but really all i need and i am thinking about that future $5 a gallon gas.
once i figure out how to get photos to upload i am gonna start a journal on this long rebuild!
good thread and thanks guys for starting it!
