#ETCGDadsTruck 4” Rear Suspension Drop (Part 1)

This is (Episode 3) of the #ETCGDadsTruck Series.

In this video I show you how to lower the rear suspension 4” on a 1990 GMT400 pick up truck (1988-1998) by relocating the rear leaf spring. This is not an axle flip, so you don’t have to notch the frame.

  1. "Most of the time the driver's weight is on the driver's side of the vehicle."

    Shhhhhocking. Picking up this series in late 2020, will give me something to watch during covid.

  2. Hey Eric your show on your dad's truck inspired me to lower the rear end of my truck 95 Chevy c 1500 extended cab I got that from my ex-girlfriends stepfather want to drop it 2 more inches in the back and 2 in the front…… But you did an excellent job on that truck I like it

  3. I like how they replaced both the front and rear components of the rear springs thus maintaining the spring geometry. Lots of guys will mess with that and not realize the angle between the front mount and the rear hanger is important.

  4. When I dropped my rear end every ubolt was broken! Something I started using that saved me a lot of time and headache was using evaporust. The nuts, bolts, and washers looked new after about a half hour.

  5. As someone who sits in front of a computer all day for work, I appreciate being able to live vicariously as Eric works with power tools and does things that have an actual, immediate effect.

  6. That truck looks pretty clean from underneath. Doesn’t look like there’s hardly any rust at all considering the age.

  7. i have always been told to replace ubolts, but several auto channels i watch have reused old ubolts on projects. So should you replace them or are they safe to reuse?
