Calling all C-10 owners

I am looking for pictures of a 1/3, 2/3 drop I don't really want to go more than 2 in the front so I don't have to buy a new shock but it is a possibility since the original ones are on there. I have searched google and can't find much. Please pretty much any lowered 67-72 c-10 preferably longbed. Thanks in advance.
Blake

If you go with dropped spindles in front you still use the stock shocks. I went with 73-87 dropped spindles on my '66 as thats the recommended way to drop the front from all the articles I have read due to keeping the stock travel and geometry. Also makes a disc brake conversion easy if you still have 4 wheel drums

yeah, i know I just didn't want to do that, there is supposedly a 2 inch drop from rear to front stock, But disc brakes would be good

You could go with stock 73-87 spindles.

no but it will make it disc brake compatable, you can run 2 inch drop shackles(if leaf spring) or 2 inch drop coils(if coil spring) in the rear to level it.
