Fat Man stage 3 coilover 65 chevy c-10

Im real close to purchasing the Fat Man Stage 3 coil-over set-up, big block. Anyone out there used this package? Quality?, fit?, performance? Any one out there w/any Fat Man suspension? Thanks, Pat F.

If it is designed for your truck, it should be good. I am running a Fatman Stage 3 on my 36 coupe and a brand Xcross member with Fatmans stuff attached to it on my 36 PU. I'm happy with them. The stage 3 has been on the road since 99 and the truck since 01. Both have close to 40,000 on them.

I've put a Fat Man stage III kit on my 34 Ford roadster project.
I should have bought the narrowed version, because the vertical plates where the upper A-arms are attached ended outside the frame rails instead of on top of them like all photos show. This will probably not be a problem on a wider frame, but check it out to be sure.

And it actually wasn't a big problem for me either. I just added some steel that beefed it up and made it looks better at the same time:
