69 c10 rear coil spring lowering
 
I ahve a 69 c10 short bed step side with coil springs. Want to lower it 3 inches in back...The front is already lowered. Can I just buy 3 inch lowering coils and install them?

Same rear suspension as your 69, with springs from a Jeep TJ in the back. clipped 1.5 coils in front. Should get you close to your requirements.

YES AND NO..
easyest way is listed above..
but you'll need to get the angled shims to get the pinion angle correct..
many vendors sell them for these truck(aka nascar )

I made blocks.. with 2.5" 1/4" thick square tube
