Description

1973 – 1987 C10 Complete DJM 3/5 Kit

Note: Measure the width of your disc brake rotor - why? read below

The good old drop spindle, as classic as the truck it’s self, sports a 3″ drop in the front. Whats important here is to be sure to measure the width of your brake rotor. You will have either a 1″ or 1.25″ rotor. If you have a 1.25″ rotor use (DJM2045H-3/5).

 

The rear is a simple flip kit where you move the axle from beneath the leaf spring to on top of the leaf spring. No “C-section” required on your C-10 because the frame has plenty of relief built in and even though you’ve “flipped it you still have plenty of travel! Tech Tip: If your U-bolts are in bad shape, a very real possibility on a 30 - 40+ year old truck, you may consider this kit DJM2045L-3/5LTD. Same as this kit with a flip kit that includes new U-bolts and leaf spring spring plates!

(Turn up your speakers) You can build a radical engine by combining parts made by different manufactures but you really have […]

Drop Spindles

While control arms might be considered the horizontal members of the front end, spindles would be the vertical member that ties the control arms together. Both upper and lower control arms attach themselves through ball joints to the spindle. This is a cast iron part where the machined “axle” is located. The wheel bearings and brake rotors […]

Flip Kits

The first thing to get off the table regarding “flip kits” is nothing is actually flipped! Simply put a flip kit moves the axle from beneath the leaf spring to on top of the leaf spring. The devil is in the details here and how its done is very important. When you place your axle […]
