11' Express 3/5 Drop.
Dont really post much on this forum.. But thought I would show off my truck a little on this site as well. Right now its about a 2.8" in the front and 5" in the rear.. Its still gonna settle a little more the more I drive it and hit big bumps. Ill come down to a 3-3.2" in the front im thinking after a while. I added the belltech street performance shocks in the front, the rear gave us a little trouble and I was on a time crunch so the SP shocks didnt go in. Still using the factory ones. But the truck rides great!! Way less body roll, handles amazing going threw corners, and even at a 100mph its smooth. I had just got off work and snap these quick photos. Ill post more and better ones later. Ive already whored it a little bit on other sites. Anyways enough blah blah...

What kit did you use and how exactly did you get a 3/5 drop?

03lowram 03-19-2012 03:26 PM

Mcgaughys spindle kit, and belltech street performance shocks. And I cut the coils in the front and rear for a 3/5 drop.

Is it just me or does the front wheels stick out a lot from the fender...?

03lowram 03-19-2012 04:34 PM

They do.. Trust me I dont like it one bit, but thats what the mcgaughys spindle do in the front on these trucks. It was pushed out about 1/2" I also havent got it aligned yet.

Props to you man, that is one slick looking ride.

Would die on the roads up here in the winter though, if I lived in the city/states you got the ride I would want!

I cut half a coil in the front and added belltech drop shocks to the front in place of the factory shocks.
For the rear I cut 2 coils out of the mcgaughys springs for a 1" drop in the rear.
Any questions.. Pm. I dont get on this site much.
