Drop that BABY

Dude ,Depending on how low you want to go I've swapped out front spring towers out of a 3/4 ton to drop it about 2," 2 1/2" you still get the same ride (get alignment checked) also I cut 1 full coil of the springs. (little rougher ride) . I also took the front end out of a "75 F-100 (p/s, power disc brakes ) and bolted it right in . just have to re-drill bracket from brake pedal to booster.The proportioning valve and bracket all fit and rear brake lines bolt up 1/2 down the frame rail on d/s. the steering column needs to be shorted so keep the center shaft out of the "75 . the outer column needs to be cut down and the mounting bracket needs to be relocated and "75 shaft installed. Its pretty self explanatory. Hope this helps.
