I thought about it but i didn't. Do you haul anything? If you do does it really make a difference?

removing the overload doesnt mean you cant haul or tow at all.

The overload is there to prevent too much squatting in the event you "overloaded " the truck. I personally as well as many many others have removed the overloads and still hauled or towed with no problems at all. You will still hit the bumpstops that are factory with or without the overloads removed or on when loaded to the max.

Yes its a spindle for the frt and a flip for the rear. The 4x4's can be dropped,and there are hundred upon hundreds of dropped 4x4s with no problems whatsoever,BUT there are also guys who have a dropped 4x4 who dont know that your not supposed to engage 4x4 on high traction surfaces or make very tight turns while engaged in 4x4......those guys plus the ones who try to get more drop than the spindles provide also have high dollar frt axle or even differential repairs.Dropping 4x4 can be done,I have done many many and sold many many,but the few damaged ones have led me last few years to try and caution people.
