lowering a truck

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
i'm finally getting my savage this weekend and after i break her in, the first thing i wanna do is lower it for better stability and cornering.

Do they sell shorter springs? or can you get shorter shafts? are the shafts adjustable?

just some of the questions i've got.

Thanks in advance for any info u might provide me.

what I have done in the past rebuild the shocks I put a piece of fuel tubing in the shock shaft then put it back in the shock housing. Ther is a little black piece of plactic that goes back on but I cut it in 1/2.. then screwed the end back on the shaft... when your put the spring back on you don't use the large spacer... dont use anymore then 3/4" length of tubing in each shock, and make sure they are all the same length
You can drive a fast truck slow, but you can't drive a slow truck fast!
