First is I like a kit that honestly feel different, tighter and better thru control. This is only tighter because there's little travel left.
Next, my 2/4" actually did 1.5"and 3 1/4". So it really doesn't look lowered either.
Finally, w 300 lb tongue weight of my boat it squats it completely to the bump stops.

I was hoping to go 3/5 or last truck was 5/6 and rode just as good if not better. (mc gaughys on it)

My plan now is mc gaughys spindles added to the front but who knows for the rear. I don't think i can believe the guys that claim 6" or more rear drop. As I said I am 3.25" and close to the suspension hitting at the axle.

I hate to sound so negative, I really am a very positive person, but as I said I've been thru this more than a dozen times so I know what to expect I feel. This kit is ok, not great. Btw, I coil cut my dads 12 express qc , oem shocks and it looks and feels identical to my $500 kit, that sucks.

another thing i would check too is that they are the correct springs as well. I have read in several places where they put chevy springs in the dodge kits.
