No one here that I know of. Have you read their feedback to see what people are saying about them? A word of cation: At 3/5, you are pushing the limits of drop on these trucks, and are VERY close to bottoming out! Also you would definately have to adress issues like shocks, swaybar endlinks, panhard bar alignment, and bumpstops. This "kit" doesn't adress any of that, it's just springs.

sry Its actually 3-4 not 3-5

its just that im getting ready to lower my truck but don't know wat kit to go with, really wanted a 3-5 but don't want to cut the springs,

also not sure if I should lower using springs or spindles if I do decide to go with the traditional 2-4, I really want to keep the nice ride that the truck already has so spindles sound good to me but what I don't like is tha fact that they push the wheels out 5/8 and I just don't think they will look good with my SRT replicas

also don't knw wether to go belltech or mcaughys some say belltech rides better but has suspension problems due to the panhard bar??? Ive been researching for long time but just cant make up my mind

Spindles are always the best way to go when lowering the front.
