I have a 2001 silverado with a camburg 6.5 kit in the front with f87 deavers in the back and 5100 bilstein shocks all around. I wanted to know what are the benefits if any of doing a spring under conversion on my truck or just any truck for that matter. Thanx for all of your input and help.

the main benefits are lots of wheel travel with a low ride height and less axle wrap and wheel hop.

we built those just for that truck but we would easily whip up some more if needed. let me talk to nate and see what he says about the price. i might have some more pics of just the plates off the truck........ill look........

well i couldnt find any more pics but figure in the neighborhood of $150ish for the u-bolt plates and they are made of 1/4" and 3/16" 4130 plate.
