Hey Guys,

I'm not sure why I can't post this in the "items wanted" section so I placed it here.  I apologize to the moderator for this and hopefully the post can be moved or I can be dialed in on how to do it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey guys,

I am new to the site and am attempting my first post on this forum. I can say that this forum has provided much needed information in the planning phase of my build.

I have recently acquired my grandfathers 1979 C10 LWB, and intend to start building it very soon. I have put in the hours of doing homework and researching different components and kits for what I want to modify or replace. I'll start with the basics:

1. I do not intend to haul anything or do any amount of towing with this vehicle.
2. I do not have a "set budget" as I intend on this taking as much time as it needs to and that I am only dedicating a certain amount monthly to the truck.
3. This truck will not be a daily driver. Its purpose will be weekend rides and just having fun, so I do want a decent ride and a decent handling vehicle

I could use some honest opinions here on the technical side from those that have more experience with the squarebody, in particular, lowering them.

I started out looking at the Ridetech StreetGrip Suspension, but have realized that I can get more bang for my buck with a less expensive system. I do not want more than a

As of now this is my plan:

-Built By Brooks Longbed to Shortbed Conversion Kit (I like the K10 LWB, but want a shortbed for this C10. Please save the "just buy a shortbed instead" comment for another post, I've done the calculations on the frame)
-CPP Upper and Lower Tubular Control Arms - ball joints already installed to these.
-CPP 2" Drop Spindles
-Performance Online Drop Springs (most likely 2")
-Belltech Shocks Front and Rear
-CPP Front Sway Bar
- CPP Rear Flip Kit
- CPP C-Notch Kit
- Idler and Pitman Arms
-Upper and Lower Tie Rod Ends

I would greatly appreciate any advice on this alternative set up, or any issues that may arise going this route.

Thanks!

Hi all,

Got a 1987 R10 5.0L a couple months ago. Ever since I got it, the SES light does not come on, even at start up. It's misfiring atm so I'd like to be able to check codes without going to a mechanic who has an OBDI reader.

The gauge lights do work (mostly), and the 'seatbelt' light does work, but that's it. Never seen another light come on.
So, this is kind of a dumb simple question, but-- what lights *should* come on at ACC? I'm trying to figure out if it's just an old/burnt bulb or something else.
If it's missing a bunch of lights, I guess I'll check the gray wire from the fuse to the instrument cluster?
And if it's only missing the SES light-- does anyone have a diagram of where the actual bulbs are located in the back of the cluster? I was able to reach in and pull one without taking off the cluster, but I don't know if I was checking the right one. The one I did pull, just next to and below the big wiring harness thing, *looked* okay.

I'm also very new at all this so sorry if I'm not using the correct words.

Hi everyone,
Would anybody happen to have any leads on where I can find a tailgate trim panel for my 85 c1500. I check eBay and all of them are shot to heck. Really bad condition. I know here are hard to find in good shape. All online store are either back ordered or $500+. Just canít afford that... any leads would be great. Thanks all!
