Looking for a mild drop 1/1 1/2 2/2 2/3?
 
So i have a 4x2 tradesman regular cab long bed that will double as a work truck. ill be hauling tools and ladders about 300 pounds at most, and rarely up to 600 lbs. I have to lower it, dont ask why it just has to be lower. so my question is this.... i want to lower it less than a 2/4 and i want to do it right. what are my options? i tried looking on a few sites but most of them dont even list a 2013 ram as an option.

The suspension is the same since 2009, just call McGaughy's or belltech and let them know what you would like.

groundforce makes a 2/3 kit

Cut 1/2 a coil off the OE front springs and buy some McGaughys 2" rear drop springs ($200). I have heard they only actually drop about 1 1/2" though, but you could just a 1/2 coil to a coil off of them if it's not enough for you. With this you would end up with 1"-1 1/4" front drop and 1 1/2"-2 1/2" rear drop. It would look and work perfectly fine. Buying an aftermarket kit (if you can find one) for this small of a drop is unnecessary and a waste of money, IMO. I've lowered or lifted almost every car and truck I've owned (couple dozen or so), so you can take my word on this. ;) Just make sure to get it re-aligned.

anybody ever bought ebay springs? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2009-2012-Do...922170&vxp=mtr

There is already a thread about those springs. I would trust OE springs or a well-established brand over those. Might be okay though, give it a shot, you could be our beta tester ;)!
