Lowering a Square-Body C-10 with CPP
LET’S RECAP: THIS ’79 Chevy C-10 has been neglected throughout the past five years and almost every part needs attention after sitting for so long. In the first installment of our resurrection we focused on getting the engine running and looking right. With a good running and driving 350 V-8 now under the hood, we turned our attention to drivability. Throughout the next few months we will be focusing on the chassis, and obviously, because this is Street Trucks Magazine, we will need to address height first and foremost.
There are a lot of options for bringing these trucks down to a more respectable static ride height. Everything from a 2/4 to a 7/9 drop has been done in the past.
For our project, we wanted to be somewhere right in the middle. We also wanted to replace all of the old worn-out and dry-rotted suspension pieces while we were lowering the truck. So we turned to Classic Performance Parts (CPP).
CPP has been manufacturing parts for these trucks, as well as a plethora of other makes and models, for well over 20 years. It has become the industry’s go-to specialist for steering, brakes and suspension products for classic cars and trucks.
