bell tech 2/4 drop
 
has anyone used the bell tech 2/4 on 4th gen crew cab and cut the springs to go lower ...im wanting a 3/5 and trying to see if its possible with 22" wheels....and how many coils were cut to achieve that drop thanks.

Here's what little I know, so take it FWIW. If you lower the front any more, you will be on the edge of the alignment settings. That means you would have to install offset balljoints or find some other method to allow the necessary alignment adjustment. On the rear, unless you cut the stiff coils (which means you have to rebend the pigtail), the easy end is the soft side so it will impact the ride. A full coil from the soft side will not change the height enough to matter, but it will make the ride firm. Don't ask me how I know all this.

So basicly I'm screwed lol ... I've heard of people cutting a coil off the rear Mcgaughry spring but never heard of having rebend pigtail... So by the way how do you know all this
