Hi all. Just been chatting to a mate of mine who's got a '65 Dodge D100 Sweptline pick-up. He said that he wants to lower the truck all round but is unsure of the best way to go about it. It has leaf springs all round so I suggested lowering blocks but he said they wouldn't work for some reason and asked about new springs but lowered ones. I mentioned that lowered leaf springs might only be re-profiled with reversed eyes, so has anyone performed this before or does anyone have a better method? Thx for any advice given chaps. Rog.
This is what he has,


This is what he'd like

He may have to weld on new leaf spring mounts on the front and rear axles. Watch out for the steering rubbing on the fronts springs , especially on full lock. If they do may have to reverse the tapers in the steering arms. Also watch scrublines as th axle can easily end up below the wheel rim ( hands on experience but NOT Dodge )

EDIT Green one looks hard as nails:tup:
