Old thread I know, but how much clearance do you have in the rear? Mines dropped 4 in the rear and I'm about an inch from the bump stops. How'd you manage going lower with those?

Just wondering because I miiiiight be going lower with mine. Thanks a bunch!

No problem if you look at my old 2012 ram thread you will see the clearance is close to none.. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=116700&page=5 that is with 3 rear coils cut out of my 4" drop coils I now have 4 coils cut...

Damn, so basically your riding on bump stops? Hell I figure with just the basic 4" drop a c-notch wouldn't hurt. I might just keep mine how it is and slam my Silverado 5/7. Lol.

I think you would be the first to notch a static drop 4th gen ram. At least to my knowledge.

Any chance you could take some pictures of how close you are to the bumps and what angle your control arms are at. I'm debating going a little lower on my 2012.

Thanks!

In the front the control arm rides on the factory bumpstop (no gap in between) thats how i keep the tires from tearing up my fenders. The 2013's have a different lower control arm than the 12's I will see if I can snap some pics for you...

Thanks man !!! Also, the rear control arms, what angle are they sitting at. I appreciate it.
