The most popular truck to lower ever. Period. I don't even need to look that one up. I just know it.

There were two different spindles on the 1500's. If the truck is a 1988-91 regular cab, not 454 SS, then use a spindle that takes a 1" thick rotor setup. The bearings and calipers are different, so if you get the wrong spindles it's not a matter of just going out and getting a different set of rotors. We have also seen the odd truck that should have the 1" rotors that actually has 1.25" thick ones. You can usually measure without even taking a wheel off.

In the rear is a standard leaf spring setup. A shackle will get you 2 inch drop, shackle / hanger combo gets you 4 inch drop and a flip kit will give you 6 to 7 inches. This is also the first generation that we have parts available to lower the 4x4's.
