DO NOT GET SHOCKWAVESBeyond Static said:I'm drivin the 6/8ish drop daily. Its one hell of a ride. I wish I had saved a little more and gone with bags. The KP cantilever/4-link is the rear kit I'm lookin into. For the front, I am going to do Air Ride Shockwaves.
good... i've never met a single person who liked their shockwavesBeyond Static said:I was dreaming when I posted that. I will prolly not do shockwaves due to the amount of $$$$ they cost. haha. I will prolly just do cups and bags one day soon.
Pretty much what he said, but there is alot of other stuff involved in a traditional bodydrop. It's a big job and easy to screw up if you don't know what your doing.tuckin22 said:a tradtional body drop is when you either cut the floor out of a truck and lower it down over the frame until the body hits the ground and weld it back up theres more involed but thats the general idea
there also a stock floor bodydrop - a new frame is made that is not as tall but maybe wider. some people/shops cut and hack the old frame up and slide new peices in it to help it be stronger but thats a hacked way of doing it imo
there also channelling which on certain parts of the floor are cut and raised
do a search and you should find out more info on the diffrent types
