1979 Dodge Club Cab 8" lift install.

This is getting new outer knuckles with hubs for a full time conversion. The owner has already done all the transfer case mods. Also going to be removing the 4" suspension lift and upgrading to a full suspension system from Skyjacker for a total of 8" lift. This is an all spring lift and steering mods also new shocks and brake lines. Here are a few before pics.

Man this is a long truck.. Cant wait to see it with the new lift.

Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.

Update time. this project is now all finished. The knuckle swap was a fun adventure, new ball joints, bearings, seals, along with a new raised chevy steering arm. Also had to do some axle shaft swap to make everything work together. Made a custom new Tie-rod also. To finish it off we installed all new brakes including pads, calipers, brake hoses and had the rotor resurfaced. Here are a few pics.

Steering knuckles all stripped off the dodge ready for the chevy parts

Then installed the new parts, these are the old springs compared to the new.

That's a raised steering arm, adjustable drag link and a drop pitman arm!

Just needs to get an alignment and put the new rims and tires on.
