1973 -1987 C10 Complete DJM 3/5 Kit
Note: Measure the width of your disc brake rotor
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″ rotor use (DJM2045L-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 DJM2045H-3/5LTD. Same as this kit with a flip kit that includes new U-bolts and leaf spring spring plates!
