Default Thoughts on my Lowering Idea

So I have been eyeballing the Mcgaughy's 2/4 drop for some time, but was thinking what if I run the 2" rear drop coil and the front 2" coil from the kit. So I called Mcgaughy's and they said that they will sell me just the 2" front coils with the rear 2" drop coils for $358.00. I'm looking for factory look but just a little lower!

Now correct me if I'm wrong but I shouldn't need the track bar relocator, sway bar end links and bump stops? Also gonna be running stock chrome clad 20" and factory tires for now. I also intend to install a front and rear Adco sway bars. Lets here some thoughts? Thanks in advance.

I'm not a fan of the raked look, but that's JMO. As far as your idea, it would work just fine, and no you wouldn't need anything else. Good news is if you change your mind about the rear, you can always trim a coil or two off to get what you want. I say go for it and good luck!

So I will have no issues with clearance of the factory 20' and stock tires?

You shouldn't. There have been many here that have done it.
