Droppin' a BURB??
My question is simple. has anyone out there droped a straight front axle chevy truck (a '53 burb to be exact) by simply flipping the axle to the top of the leafs instead of leaving it on the bottom?? after looking the front end of my burb over, I have determined it should be fairly simple. part of the steering arm (on the outside of the frame) will need to be shortened, the frame will need to be 'c'notched (for bump stop clearance), and a plate for the new u bolts fabbed. not all that much work, and approximately a six inch drop is the result!!
if anyone out there has seen this done....done it...or even heard of someone who has done it, please respond and tell me if it is going to be a functioning deal. or if i need to just leave it alone and mustang II the front. fyi....i'm not subframeing the truck!!! no camaro or any other gm clip!!. i want it to remain as stock as possible. its an old school hot rod, not a 'bagged' billet cruiser. not that there's anything wrong with that. THANKS VERY MUCH!! <img src="graemlins/pimp.gif" border="0" alt="[pimp]" />
