  1. I'm right at 5" in the front with no rings on the left and an 8mm ring on the right to compensate for the lean.
  2. Yea, those photos were from when I first lowered it while on the stock 17's. I'll measure from wheel center and get back to you. Yea, those photos were from when I first lowered it while on the stock 17's. I'll measure from wheel center and get back to you.
  3. Just for comparison... my Belltech 7" flip, stock hanger w/shorter shackle (as pictured above) gave me about 7 3/8" drop.
  4. The only one that I'm aware of is made by Street Scene. I can't comment on quality though. http://www.streetsceneeq.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=streetsceneeq&Screen=PROD&Product_Code=950-71131
  5. If you are staying with the 2/4 drop you could easily go to a 305/50R20 and get about 1 1/2" more width while staying at the same 32" overall diameter. I'm running 275/40R22 (30.6") up front and 305/40R22 (31.6") out back on a 5/7 drop...
  6. Your tires will be flush or slightly tucked with the +31 offset of the replicas unless you run spacers. I used Factory Reproductions.
  7. Depends on how you want it to look... with 25mm the tires will be just about flush with the fenders while at 10mm they will stick out.
  8. What don't you like about your ride? With a flip kit on leaf springs, the addition of air bags will do nothing to help your ride. The only thing the McGaughy's or any other helper bag kit will do is provide you with better load carrying capacity. Your truck should ride at least as good as stock on stock leaf springs with a flipped axle, nothing has changed. The only thing that will affect the ride negatively would be your shock choice. Only when using air bags with a four-link/panhard instead of leaf springs would there be an improvement.
