Default 4th Gen Lowered 2/2 ?!?

I have a black Express group and i will be getting new wheels and Nitto 420s soon. The tires will be 305/50/20 so they are going to be a little smaller.
I want to keep the rake in it and i don't want it too low.
I found springs that would lower the front and back 2" and would there for keep the rake in it.

Just curious if anyone has done this or something other than the normal 2" rear level or the full 2/4 kits.

thanks

No 2/2 kits off the shelf that I'm aware of. Your closest bet would be the Groundforce 2/3. It retains a decent amount of rake and looks good with the 305's.

Agree, do the GF 2/3...then the 305's on your 20x9 wheels will be fine.

Maxtrac makes a 2/3" drop. I looked at it but ended up getting their 4.5" lift instead. Shipped fast and the springs and shocks I got with the lift were nice.

Their kit is only for 4X2's. Does anyone know of an AFFORDABLE 2/3 kit for 4X4's?
