    Default A leetle bit lower now...

    Well, I finally got my truck lower. I went from a 2/3 (belltech springs and 3" blocks) to a 3/4 with the DJM control arms and 4" blocks. Install wasn't bad except that my friend and I ended up aligning it ourselves and that took a while. All in all pretty easy and smooth sailing. The ride isn't much different, although I hit a HUGE dip on the highway this mornng and scrubbed my front fenders pretty hard and hit my bump stops in the back pretty good too. I may need to cut them down if it happens frequenly. I think it looks TONS better and the thing I am most happy about is that I can go lower pretty easily in the future now! :D

    Well, on to the pictures.

    fair enough. How much lower do you plan to go? Maybe airbag set-up and tuckin rims?

    Very nice, although it still seems really high for having a 4" drop! I guess when you start with a truck stance there is plenty of room to go. Did you have any camber issues with the drop, or does the solid axle keep all of that under control?
