  1. If you drop the truck yourself, the first thing you gotta do is get an alignment. If you know how to manipulate stuff, you can eyeball it to get close enough for a short drive to the alignment shop. Truck looks good though! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. I think it's basically the same thing, your shock probably came with a shorter spring to lower the front, and I just replaced the spring on my stock shocks. I have no complaints about the ride on the front of my truck, I wish I could soften the rear up a bit more though. I started with just shock extenders, and now went with belltech shocks. It's better, but it's still stiffer than I'd like. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  3. Also keep in mind, the thinner the sidewall is, the rougher the ride will be, and the higher the risk of bending a wheel on potholes and such. Go with as much sidewall as you can Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks! She's my baby for sure That tire size is roughly 1" taller than mine, and I already rub the top of the fender liner on big bumps on the highway, as well as the back of the liner when I turn hard, so yours will rub worse. There are a couple basic solutions, 1 run a narrower tire up front. The highway bumps will still be a problem, but you won't rub as much or maybe not at all when turning 2 run less drop in the suspension. Let's be real, screw that lol 3 start looking at modifying the wheel well to allow more room, not a bad option, just gets pricey for a good shop, and looks horrible if done half assed 4 decide if you're just dead set on 24s or if maybe you could be happy with 22s.

  5. I have a mcg drop with spindles and springs up front, and a flip in the rear. My truck sits almost exactly at a 4/6 drop, and I'm running 305/40/22 tires all the way around, and I'm telling you, 24s are gonna rub unless you have a very thin sidewall tire, which is going to have a very harsh ride.

  6. There might be a few connections missing in your stock wiring. Reach out to pgamboa that dude has the wiring on these trucks figured out, and can possibly even hook you up with the correct harness to make your new mirrors work correctly (and look like it came that way from the factory) Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. I used MVI Inc for my upgrade, just Google them and their website is easy to find. They weren't cheap though. If I were going to do it again, I think I'd contact th3magpi3 and see what he has going on. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. Just to pitch in I'm running 305/40/22 on a 4/6 drop, and I rub on big bumps and when turning. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. It took me about 2 days, but I wasn't pushing real hard to get done, taking lots of breaks etc. You could probably do it in one long day if you stay on task and don't mess around. Shops that do these regularly and are familiar with what they're doing can easily get it done inside a regular business day. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. It was a pita for sure. I removed the passenger side spring, and just dropped the rear of the driver's side spring. After that just a lot of cussing and wiggling to get the axle on top of the spring. I'm not sure which was worse, removing the rear spring hangers, or relocating the axle lol.

  11. I dropped my truck in my driveway with jackstands, and without removing the tank. It would be much easier on a lift, but if you're comfortable with a wrench and a grinder, you'll be able to install the kit yourself. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Nasty will tell you not to use DJM, if you look back through posts within the last few months you'll see his posts about why. I have a 4wd single cab that I dropped 4/6 because I wanted to keep a slight rake, I used mcgaughys drop spindles, and flip kit, with shorter springs up front. But since you're 2wd, mcgaughys has a complete kit to go 4/7. I would add shocks to the rear that are the right length, I can't give you part numbers because I haven't gotten around to it yet. For wheels and tires, I'm running 305/40/22 tires on 22x10 wheels. I do rub slightly, but it's just rubbing the liner and not any metal parts, and it doesn't bother me. If you run 285's on 22x9s I don't think you'll rub up front. I'm sure others will chime in later, but there's my 2 cents. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. I think the difference between the ride is nearly negligible. You're using the same springs. However shock selection is going to determine if the ride is stiff or smooth. With the shackles, use shock extenders, and you're good to go, you probably won't be able to tell a difference in the ride vs stock. With the flip, get correct length shocks, and you'll have the same result. Shock extenders will help soften the ride but it will still be a bit stiffer. Get the right shocks and the ride will be as good or better than stock Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. I'd go with mcgaughys spindles up front with a flip kit in the rear. I would suggest a 3/5 though. I had a 2/4 drop with the same size wheels and tires on my last truck, and honestly I wanted just a little more. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah, you're definitely not getting "the hookup" but 10 hours is fairly reasonable. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
