C-notch, flip kit?

C-notch, flip kit?

Postby Astroholm [OP] » September 3rd 2008, 1:52pm

Hi guys.

I have a 93 Astro where that I have converted from composite to steel leaf from a 96. When having my trailer in the back the clearness are not enough :banghead: . Does anybody have a measurement for a c-notch?
My plane are to cut out the area straight over the axel and weld in new steel in front and back to strength the frame. But if anyone have done it and have some picture or measurement, that will be to great help.

In advance, thanks a lot.

Hi

Thanks for the feedback, I liked the picture and how the person has done it. I will post some picture after I have done it. It will be done before Christmas some time.

Thanks for all the hints and tips on this page.

Regards

No. I've had mine flipped and added helping air bags for the times that I tow. That is if you do a 3 inch kit.
