Default 3" Lowering Springs for 05 1500

I did a search seen a couple of guys mention these 3" Lowering

Nope, get some and let us know. I want them for my truck to replace my 2" springs...then put them on my dads truck w/ some shackles so he can get a lil lower too.

wow I haven't been on here in a long time. I need to get some updated pictures of my truck up.

anyway, I have those springs. the quality is great. The only problem is that it lowers it just a little bit too much to get the Camber back to 0 degrees. I got mine adjusted as close as the shop could get it and I haven't had any serious tire wear problems and I've probably driven close to 1,500 miles since I put them on.

Oval the control arm bolt hole where they mount and you can pull them out to zero.
How do those springs ride?
Pics?!!?

Sorry it's taken me a few days to get back to you guys. Im actually a 23 year old college art student (finally graduating in May... 5 years is long enough) and I had a show opening on Friday so I've been getting the gallery ready.

But also being a poor college student I've been riding a 3/6 drop with the stock shocks and no c-notch... So the ride isn't that great haha but I can tell it's definitely the shocks. Those spring with drop shocks would ride just fine.

Did they go 3" or more? I only want 3" drop spring, anymore and it'd be too low (I have 2" drop spindles too).

I'm not 100% sure, I didn't measure before and after :-/ it just looked good so I was happy with it.

I'm pretty sure it had to be pretty close to 3", any more than a 3" drop from JUST a spring I think would have gave me some SERIOUS camber problems.

I only paid $150 for them (including shipping) off their website. I would try just buying them and putting them on and see how you like it (that was kind of my approach haha) and then if you don't like them, I've some other people interested in them on here that would probably buy them off you.
