    LS6 '99 RCSB Project - rkwhite61

    Picked up a running '99 RCSB for $400. My cousin just wanted to get it out of his way. Drove it to the shop and started tearing it down.



    Plans are a follows.

    Drivetrain:
    Engine: '04 LS6
    Trans: 4l60E w/ 2800 stall
    Rear end: 3:73

    Suspension: 4/4 or 4/5 (want a slight rake look in the stance - trial and error here)
    McGaughy's 2" drop spindles
    Hotchkis Sport Performance 2" drop coils
    McGaughy's 4" or Bell Tech 3" drop leafs - not sure which one. Thoughts?
    McGaughy's 1-2" drop shackles
    Hotchkis sway bars - front and rear

    Wheels/Tires:
    Silverado SS wheels
    255/45R20 or 275/40R20 if they will fit on 8.5" rim - front
    275/45R20 - rear

    Paint:
    GM Truck or Vette Black with Vette Electron Blue or Ford Blue Flame Metallic


    A few pics to date:

    LS6:


    Washed body and started tear down:







    SS Wheels I picked up:


    This is my first experience with the LS platform and I'm totally confused at this point... do I do this or do I do that. lol. Stay tuned. You'll see me posting questions. Thanks for the support in advance.

    Very nice. Looks like we've been undergoing almost the same process.

    I replied to you over at the Z06 forum.

    Now if I could remember to label the bags, it would help! I have probably 10 bags left over from the 69... no idea wtf they went to.
