I want to lower my 81 F100

Submitted on 2011/11/12 at 11:10 am

I have an 81 F-100 4×2 short flareside and need to know
easiest way to use your 84-86 DB 3003-3 beams and still retain my early F-100 4.5 bolt circle rotors and
brakes. For example, can my kingpin 81 spindles be
machined to take the 3003-3 ball-joint axles ?

I would like to know if I have to use the big/ugly
and clunky 5.5 big rotors and brakes before I purchase
the 3003-3 kit. Thanks, Chic N. Pautpi

Thanks for your question, it’s not easy for guy’s with 80/81/82 F100′s to find lowering parts! Lets start with your king pin beams, are they the same length or unequal lenght? Knowing that will help wit what to do next!!
