Anyone even remotely involved in the classic truck
hobby can appreciate the popularity of '67-'72 Chevy and GMC trucks these days.
With the growing demand, it's easy to see why it's becoming so hard to find a
decent C-10 shortbed truck. This lack of supply has stirred
the creativity among us. Folks are beginning to buy clean C-20 ¾-ton trucks that are in nice shape and swapping out
the eight-lug suspension for the five-lug suspension. Some are even shortening
their long wheelbase frames to make them into short beds.
Enterprises, the company that brought us the original classic truck C-10 drop
spindle, has once again set the standard with it's new C-20 to C-10 conversion
spindle and lowering kit. Designed and manufactured to accept the original C-20
tie rods and ball joints, these spindles make converting from eight-lug to
five-lug a simple bolt-on affair.
ECE offers several different designs for
the various models of '60-'87 C-20 trucks, along with the necessary disc brake
conversion kits for the '70-and-earlier drum brake-model trucks.
