The originals are 12mm high, my own casted are 11mm high, but I will lower them accordingly.
I hope to lower the truck about 4 - 5 inches. Is that O-key?
Tony, thank you for your thoughts.
Dropping a truck like this 4-5 inches is ok, and really doesn't seem that much, the truck that I am building in 1/16th has been dropped 16 inches
efectively it is 16 inches when parked, but raises 5 inches when driving, so therefore it has a dropped height of 11 inches from standard
The set up is much the same as yours, just a little lower, my theory was to use the peterbilt rear on the KW, but turn the bags and shocks to the outside to give the illusion of a neway rear end, in theory this should work, it is yet to be proven if it will, I will be starting the suspension next week, it still may turn out that new arms may still have to be made and the various other parts to go with it
I like your idea of trimming away, the underside of the arms, and it appears that you have trimmed a little off the axles,
Really it doesn't matter how much you have dropped this truck, it will still look great with the paint that you have chosen, so keep up the good work, I am looking forward to your next update
