Kirk Lane's '70 GMC

     Just figured I should finally get around to sending in the pictures of my '70 GMC...

      It's been about four years and thirty thousand miles (!) since my dad and I installed the 2.5" Drop Spindles with Disc Brake Conversion, and 4" Drop Leaves out back.  That was back at the very beginning of my truck's restoration; the first order of business was to get it driving safely again, and discs up front, along with a fresh suspension, were a must.

      The parts have all performed flawlessly; I have yet to even have to replace the front pads!  Let alone the rest of the ball joints, tie rods, and the shocks...

      Aside from all of the ECE-supplied suspension goodies, the truck has the original 350 bottom end (hopefully coming out this summer for a 383 or 406), Vortec heads, an Edelbrock Performer Vortec intake, Edelbrock #1901 carb, aftermarket HEI distributor, K&N open-element air cleaner, a 700R4 transmission with one-piece driveshaft, an Inyati sprayed-in bedliner, 1999 Suburban second-row bench seat, a Grant GT steering wheel with billet kit, Aiwa CDC-MP3 headunit with Infinity 652i speakers, and Custom Classic LED taillights.  Of course, there's still some factory stuff in air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, and the 3.73 rear.

      I love this truck, and it simply wouldn't be all of the truck it is today without the stuff I got from ECE...rides great, handles great, goes great (not a bit of wheel hop or anything...15.7's at 86mph and getting faster) and, to top it all off, it still hauls!  I've used the truck to help my dad move twice, and in a month or so, I'll be using it to move myself as well.
