Default mcgaughys vs cheaper street edge

I'm looking to do a 2/4 drop on my 05 daytona. It looks as though people on here like the quality of the mcgaughy kit but what about street edge? I've tried searching but had no luck getting results.

Street Edge is brand new, its a spin off of KW Automotive, or Belltech as well.

I had the McGaughys kit before I lifted and it rode and handled well. Good kit for the money and an easy install, I was more than satisfied with the outcome. Can't say much for the Street Edge kit as I've never heard of em since they're new.

Well I believe I've decided to go with the mcgaughys economy kit. Will I have any issues with the stock wheels and tires? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I just want to have everything covered. I plan on ordering the kit today so any information will be greatly appreciated. I will post pics as soon as I have it done. I also wanted to add that I will be running the stock shocks with this kit. Will that be a problem?

Thanks!

I dropped mine 2/4 and used factory 20's for awhile.

As did Graygoose, I ran the stock 20's the entire time I had the kit on. I also ran stock shocks with the kit, still am too!

I pulled the trigger on the mcgaughy kit. I'll post pics by the end of next week...hopefully! Matte black Srt10 wheels are definitely on the list as well.

Default McGaughy's lowering kit

I put the 2/4.5 McGaughy's kit on my 05 Daytona. It goes on easy and the truck handles much better with it installed. I'm glad I did it.
2 things, don't be surprised if you have to drop your exhaust tips .5'-1", and if you torque the leaf u-bolts to factory specs, 110ft/lbs, don't be surprised that the plates warp some.

Here it is lowered wigh the mcgaughy economy drop. It turned out nice but now it screams to have different wheels! I think I've started something I can't stop now! Lol.

That looks real nice! I agree on the wheels. I don't know why they put so much chrome on the Daytona's. I painted my wheels Satin black and looks much better, like they should have been from the factory!
