McG 4/6 Drop Shock HELP
Hey all I'm ordering my McG 4/6 drop kit (94006) and I need to know the best shocks get. The McG 2250s are suggested for the rear but I can't find any info on what to get for the front. Please help.

Also any tips and tricks for my install would be awesome. Thanks everyone!!

If you're running that 305/45 you mentioned in another thread you better double check the measurements to make sure you can run a 4" front may have some clearance issues.

Thx UNBROKEN. I'll check it out. I'm going to see the guy that's helping me put on my kit tomorrow and he's a pro. I think it'll be close but good cause I've got right at 4" between tire and fender with 120k miles on the original front suspension which is sagging a bit. I hope it's going to work because I think it's going to look pretty good. Thank you for the heads up.

Measure the gap + suspension compression. You don't want the tires tearing stuff up when you hit bumps in the road.

Gotcha, cool. Thx again. And if you know of anyone that can help with my shock prob please send them my way.

On my McG kit I ran bell tech shocks. Zero issues.
And yes, 45 series esp 305s will rub. I ran 285/40s and they were perfect

Thanks for the tips guys. I decided to go with the Belltech 2/5. I'm refuse to run a smaller tire cause my gas mileage is already terrible and don't want to make it worse. Going with the 812SP kit but swapping out the rear shocks with adjustable air shocks in the rear to raise it up a bit. Pics to come, thx again.
