2012 express qc goin 3/5... Questions
I have the bell tech 2/4 kit w shocks arriving friday but really want to go another inch. I read a half coil out of the Front will do it and a full coil rear. Sound right?
Also if I do this can I tow my 21' bass boat w/o helper bags or is that a must?!
Thanks in advance

Read more on the cuts for belltech, but it more highly recommended to use drop spindles, then cut exactly half of one spring on the front, whbich will give you 3"s, no alignment issues this way also, if you cut those belltech springs you will be out of the range of adjustability for alignment., bumpstop issues also. Read my post on my setup, and cutting of springs. Even now I still rub, when I got thbree people in the cab and I go through a large whoopdi do, look at my pics, I got a 2\4 and 2" smaller tires. I still tow a 5000lb trailer without issue, but with cut coils and towing a large boat, I don't know!

you dropped it yet?

I've lowered (or lifted) almost every vehicle I've owned, and several times I've regretted going too low. I would suggest installing as-is for now and see how it rides/looks. If you still want to go lower you can, but you can't weld the coil back on if you go too low right away:doh:!! Just my .02...

I'm lowered now and after having my last one dropped 5/6" I need more. Spindles won't work bc I need them to tuck. Thinking about cutting half a coil up front and a whole coil rear w air assist. Considered QA1s in the rear but still would need something when I tow.
I dunno.... Gotta do something
