Aquaholic72.....ur 1-ton, that's a flop & c- notch on the back? Front is 2"drop spindles w/short springs? I really like the way it sits. How's your ride quality, any difference? Thanks!
i believe the kit was a western 5-7 kit.. yes flop n notch in the back with leafs pulled,  and 2" spindles and spring with bump stops removed.. it rides pretty good actually.. needs helper bags n the rear for loads tho..

Helper bags make a world of difference when you got her loaded down for a five day river trip with 2 kids.   Lol

Back in '97/'98 we had a fleet of service trucks,all GM 2500's. Factory recalls all for paint issue to original owners. GM would not cover commercial duty trucks,couldn't afford 2 week down anyway,too bad. Those were damaged good trucks, never any real problems,auction off at $700 each after 140k miles. Probably still running today.

Beautiful, love the old novas. The value on them has changed so much. We had a 6 and 7 when I was younger. Never got around to building them though. Unfortunately
