I Had to Trim My Control Arms!

Submitted on 2012/02/29 at 2:51 pm

I just installed your drop spindles with 3 inch dropped springs in the front. I also did the rear flip kit for 6.25 inches of drop. I have a 1995 GMC reg cab short bed 2wd. Rides great, but I had to trim the factory lower control arms way too much with the factory 15 inch wheels. If I go up to 18 or 20 inch wheels can I replace the lower control arms “stock ones” with no trimming needed? Thanks

The wheel clearance problem your experiencing is usually found with drop spindles and 15″ wheels. However your solution of 18 or 20 inch wheels will give you what you want without hitting your factory wheels!
