4th gen 4wd qc lowering options?
 
I am ready to finally order and install a lowering kit on 2012 big horn quad cab and it seems as if all of the kits are for 2wd trucks I want to lower my truck 2/4 at least and would even cut down my coils but would like to know if anyone else has done this and what the results were. I was thinking about the McG kit with spindles and cutting the coils another 2" front and back but i dont know if this would cause problems or not.

help me decide on what to do part numbers are helpful as well as pictures.

i understand that the mcg spindles put the front tire out 1/2" and the bell tech kit shifts the rear over 1/2" (should be fix from new braket) I havent looked into the groundforcce kit

4X4

I've got the ground force 2/3 kit. It's plenty for me but they can be cut to go lower. I'm also 4wd and should be same kit for crew or quad cab.

I've only got a regular cab 4X4 but I have the groundforce 2/3 kit on it. Good stance and the ride quality is still good. I live in Wisconsin so we get a fair amount of snow here so the 2/3 kit I think is a good medium point for a drop kit for a 4X4...just my thoughts :)

so does anyone with a 4x4 use any of the other kits?

+1 on the Ground Force kit for 4x4.
Part number is 9984 and comes with front and rear springs, rear shocks and bump stops. I recommend upgrading the front shocks to Bilsteins while you're at it!

blacknchromehemi 02-25-2013 03:22 PM

i was kinda hoping to get the mcg spindles and the belltech kit and cut the rear spring an inch to get a 4/5 does anyone see any issues with doing this?
