Hello and welcome..............I have a 03 quad 2 wheel. I put on a 2 inch front drop coil and a 5 inch rear flip. Running 265/20,s. I have approx. 2ish inch clearence front and back.Is your 4x4 or 2wheel? How much of a drop would you like? Are you wanting to level out the rear?

That would look really cool a lowered mega cab! I would listen to the guys that have lowered their trucks on this one. Since you have a big truck I would try and lower the truck with air bags. Those will hold that heavy truck really well!

Welcome aboard. Best of luck, I see some of the members have already chimed in with advice.

its a 4x4 so i don't know if that is gonna effect the out come i really want to put bags on it because that would just look insane i but i know that going that rout is gonna be costly so i was kinda thinking to go springs but im not sure how low i can make it with just springs

:smileup:I put a 5inch rear flip on mine with the extra leaf and dropped it more than 5. I have 35inches all the way around i believe. Ground up to to inner fender.It wasnt to pricey.Had to put on new shocks .......shorter ones .less travel.
