  1. 2014+ Lowering / Drop Kits

    I'm out of town for work today, I'll get some measurements when I get home tomorrow... Your truck definitely looks low to me, this pic is my truck with 22" wheels and a tire diameter of just about 32". I did measure the ride height before and after, so I can verify that I am at 4" in front Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    What measurements do you want? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Yep, I'm still running stock shocks and struts. I am running the shock extenders in the rear, but kept the shocks. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    The 2 or 3 inch thing is most likely an allowance for different weight vehicles or something, but I can't speak for any other parts than mcgaughys, because I haven't used anything else. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    You are correct , the lowering shocks will cause the wheel to move slightly towards the rear of the wheel well, the drop spindles will not. Pretty much all the manufacturers will tell you they recommend no more than 2/4 drop on a 4x4. But that's mostly just them playing very safe. I haven't heard of a single problem from anyone after dropping a 4x4, and some guys have gone a good bit farther than quank and I. Here's what I did. I used the mcgaughys 2/4 drop that came with the spindles and the rear flip, then ordered 2" lowering springs and swapped the springs out on my stock struts. It's the same as ordering drop shocks, just a bit cheaper. You don't have to do anything else in the rear, as the flip kit is adjustable from 4-7" just set it at 6 and you're good to go.

    4/6 is close enough to level on my truck, that you really have to be paying close attention to see that I'm not actually level. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Personally, I absolutely hate that nose high look some guys are going for, so I leave my rear just slightly higher than the front to make damn sure I don't get the saggy britches squat. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    The 4wd spindles allow clearance for the cv axles, there isn't a huge difference, but they are different. Mcgaughys does have 4wd spindles, you can couple those with a lowering spring, or strut to go lower than 2". Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I actually didn't lose much of my turning radius at all, and I'm dropped 4/6 with 22x10 wheels and 305/40r22 tires. Maybe my truck is a unicorn, but I turn great and only rub slightly at or near full lock. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    This is what I did. Used that kit you referred to, but also used 2" springs to bring the front down to 4" and set the rear flip at 6" Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I'm running 4/6 also, but I'm using the mcgaughys spindles and rear flip then added 2"lower springs up front. Still rides like a truck, but from a performance standpoint, a stiff ride isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
