Sorry for the long reply time.. It was some 2'' drop coils that have been cut for another 2 inches... I reacently bought some belltech 2'' drop coils and it lifted truck 2 inches more on front. Means mine were more than 3 inch drop.

Cagarcia..

Yeah I have tought about ever getting some kind of raptor fenders but thing is it rises the fender weel too. More for offroad than lowered truck..



Brake-lock test/ burnout / 2-step anyone?? :icon_hornsup:

First of all, I love the stance of your truck. I am trying to figure out exactly what tires you are running. I see you write 225 and 16's but whats the sidewall number? Just trying to get an idea what to put on mine. I am gonna run 8 inch rims so I have straight sidewalls and pull the fenders accordingly. But from the looks of it those tires would have straight walls on an 8 inch rim. Thanks for all your info and contributions. As soon as I get some more pics and some more work done on my truck ill post a build thread. So far its a 93 2wd with a rear flip and coils up front. It has a hy35w and the PIMP computer is in the mail. Hope to have it running and ready for paint this summer. Planning on total black out everything. Thanks again.

Favorite mod so far is and will ever be the turbo, nothing can put a bigger smile onto my face than a burnout or scraeming engine :D . lol Dynoed 265 rwhp and 381wtq on mustang dyno, less than I expected at first but we ran into issues with the meth controller and had to stop at ~23 lbs of boost. I have a bo stg3 head waiting to be bolted onto the engine. I am not putting much of time/work into the truck since last year, got priorities but once I start again its all going into pieces for custom chassis/body and engine work.

Horse, I think they are 225/50 tires.

Well, let's revive the thread :D
1st - Nice Truck
2nd - I've copied your recipe for the truck, and mine was heading in that direction already. But now with more clarity. Although I dunno what half of that recipe means... I'm lying,, maybe 805 of what that means lol.

Do you still own the truck?

Do you think it would be possible/easier/or harder to achieve similar results on a 1994 v6 4.0L?
