Sal,

I did a 4” dropped axle in the front and a 3” drop in the back. I have not had any issues. As others will state and argue both ways, I would be careful removing leaf springs. I tried to drive mine with only half the stack and almost wrecked. I put them back in and love the ride despite being a little tougher.

Chris

Bump steer is over-dramatized. After a few hundred miles you won't notice it anymore. I've driven trucks with so much bump steer that when I switched over to a car without bump steer it felt like something was wrong. Like a friend of mine says, "Don't fear bump steer."

The drag link needs to be level and parallel with the FLOOR.

Agree, skinny tires following cracks in the road is way more problematic.

Course YUMV, extreme modified frontends will behave much differently than OEM spec'd....

I have 650 16 bias truck tires on my 53 3100, dont really notice any rut finding either, course the entire suspension and steering is brand new original. Plus, I carry a bit more toe in than most, sure it will wear the tires in the longer run but it tends to keep things really settled down driving around at speed.

Why is the toe in do critical? I know it’s part of the alignment but can that cause the bump steer?
