Suspension is from a company called SuspensionMaxx i found selling complete drop kits on E-Bay Auto's.I wanted to go as low as i possibly could without the use of air bags to control my ride height so the 5/6 was the lowest complete kit they offered up.This in addition to the lower profile Nitto NT 450 Extreme Performance tires gave me and over-all 6 1/2 inches of drop in front with 6 inches of drop in the rear-
Suspension Consists of-
-Two inch drop spindles
-Three inch drop springs
-Nitro Slammer shocks
-Nitto NT-450 Extreme Performance 195/50/15's
-Three inch drop leaf springs
-Three inch drop angled blocks
-Nitto NT-450 Extreme Performance 195/55/15's
After getting all the drop components put in place and my ride came down off tha lift there were a couple of issues-first it sat so low to the ground when we went to kick tha lift arms out from under tha truck they were still resting on tha frame and wouldnt move!!So we had to use a floor jack in the front to get the truck up high enough for the lift arms to clear!!Second was with this much of a drop it was more noticeable that the truck leaned to one side-slammed on the drivers-about and inch higher on the passengers side.NORMAL?Yup!Why?Cuz one end link connected to the front sway bar is longer than tha other creating force on the sway bar to push the steering wheel to the right side of the road just in case you happen to fall asleep at the wheel-nice saftey feature-not so good for the lowered stance your going after.Bell Tech makes a spacer that goes underneath the spring on the drivers side to level things out but the object is to get low not lift it up-instead of spending $75 on this spacer-use a bolt the same size as the end link shaft and cut it to fit the same as the drivers side to bring thangs down.
Tried the soda can under tha front valance to show off my ride height in this pic but tha damn can was too tall!!Cut that pack in half and now you've gotta pretty good idea how close my frame rails ride to the pavement!!

looks good, nice work on ur truck, 5*
Overall nice truck... But I had 22's on my 2k MC! What's with those 14" HUBCAPS!? I understand lowriding, and i like the style. So, no disrespect to that effect. Just wondering, don't you think this truck would look waaaaaaay better tucking 20's? You'd be killin' em!!! Anyway... Keep up the good work on it! Gave u ***** cuz I'm definitely not a HATER.
Theyre actually 15" hubcaps!Lol!N its cool-i know u aint hatin!Whats with em is $800 rent-$400 in other bills-three cars and a motorcycle to insure-my girl goin to Illinois State University to get a degree in teaching and a ten year old Son to raise!Some things are waaaay more important than others so if i gotta roll chrome caps and sit out on the sidelines for a while ta get the Dubs seeing my girl graduate and raising my Son up takin care of family first is always first-look at it this way-at least i didnt go cheap on the tires and every year i can change up styles for $40 bucks!Ha ha!
