View Full Version : My 2000 2wd, redone suspension
05-23-2012, 07:58 PM
Finished up my truck last weekend, thought I'd post up. I was bored of the RCD 6in. kit (for sale btw $450).
Current plans are to switch to 315's on the next set of tires, and painting the fenders. Should look much better after that. Then, tackle the rear suspension+shock hoop+rear bumper.

Damn that is a nice looking front end! Looks like a trophy truck

Thanks dude! That's kinda what I was shooting for. It sits at the same ride height as my old 6in lift, I think any higher and it doesn't look as good.
Here are some more:

05-23-2012, 10:44 PM

Mega bump- Building an axle before I get into this thing much more. 6-lug 14 bolt full floater with a Detroit, work getting done at CWF Offroad
*edit; light bar went on a while ago too. No leds allowed haha
04-30-2013, 02:26 AM
Ill buy it
05-01-2013, 01:41 PM
holy crap very nice
05-01-2013, 01:52 PM
Same bolt pattern as the 10 bolt?
05-01-2013, 02:08 PM
Yes sir 6 on 5.5, Solid/Spyntec hubs. They offer them in 5 on 5.5 too
05-01-2013, 02:41 PM
Wow I figured the hub would be too big to fit through the center hole on the rim.
05-01-2013, 08:08 PM
Ok ya, I should've added some details. The axle flange diameter has to get turned down a small amount to fit through half ton wheels. *The wheels must have a 4.25in center bore, no big deal, most aftermarket wheels do. Stock wheels and wheels made specifically for GM half ton run a 3.something inch center bore.
Depends on the center bore of the wheels you want to run.
05-01-2013, 08:17 PM
Awesome. How much did that set up run you? If you don't mind me asking.
05-01-2013, 08:30 PM
I'll have about 1500 into the thing all said and done. Got the axle off CL for real cheap. Then bought all the stuff I couldn't make. Luckily, machine work only cost me a couple 18 packs haha. It helps big time knowing someone with access to a lathe.
My options at the time were: rebuild the 10-bolt completely, custom 9in, or either of the 14-bolts. I always tell people- cheap, light, strong- you can only pick 2.
