To go really fast,the truck had to come down in height,the only problem is, nobody makes dropped spindles and such for the 3/4 ton 2wd dodge.So this was acheived by modifying a set of mcgaughys 1/2 ton dropped spindles by reaming out the bottom ball joint hole to accept the bigger 3/4 ton ball joint.The top ball joint is the same between the 1/2 ton and the 3/4 ton.test fit a new 3/4 ton ball joint into the modified deropped spindle.

Then fitted the spindle to the truck.

another angle

heres how the truck looked with just the front dropped
