ok. so I still dont have my truck after almost 3 months of waiting so I figured I might as well order my first mod.So I ordered this kit tonight.I ordered it from summit racing. It has a expected ship date of 7/24. 9984 its a 2/3 drop. looks pretty simple to install. I will get back to this post after I install kit with some answers for anyone interested in lowering their 4x4. Yes I will include before and after pics.

I have this kit on my truck and I love it. Made the truck looks SOO much better.

It only took about two hours to do with me and a buddy tag teaming it. Hardest part was the stupid center nut on the front struts. It's a PITA to hold the strut rod and turn the nut off. A good spring compressor is required. I did it at wok so we had air tools and a wall mounted spring compressor.

The one I have is apparently the older version which is 2/4". It sits perfectly level but at certain angles it looks like the front sits higher. I assume that's why they are 2/3" kits now.

Ride quality was a little stiffer but not super noticeable.

I don't really tow anything with my truck but I'd imagine it will squat a good bit if you tow heavy stuff. But the factory coils seems to leave a lot to be desired with towing as well.

I have the kit also. No complaints here! Looks awesome and the ride isn't bad at all. I put the Air Lift bags on mine because I do haul/tow some. Like Mean Mango said , it makes the truck look great!
