I cut the stock springs for the front end in conjunction with the spindles.
It was a process of taking off a little at a time (1/3 of a coil) put it back
in , bolt up everything, drive the truck , then measure. Then repeat this
process all over again until I had it sitting exactly where I wanted.
Overall.. I would guess a little over a coil was removed from the front springs.

Rears were McGaughys 4in drop coils.. I cut about a coil and a 1/3 off
The rear is just really easy.

Yes Sir ! Thank You !! Great Minds for sure

Really dig the SRT22's you are rolling on.

I decided before spending any funds towards wheels that I would
try and spiff up the stockers first. So far, the change has exceeded
my expectations.

The gray/black combo is hard to beat

If I would've known the stockers could look as good as yours I might have stuck with them, woulda had a lot more cash for go-fast goodies!
The gray and black is the best color combo going at the moment, IMO (but I might be a little biased)...

Appreciate that !! I surely did not expect the wheels to come out as good as they did..

Understood... I am just as biased

I think he prefers the raked look. I like mine slabbed out too, but to each his own. I would definitely get the tails and fogs tinted, though (I need to do my fogs).

Both of you have some badass looking trucks. You guys give me something to work towards one of these days. My next truck will definitely be a lowered 4th gen. I would take my current truck down a little more if it wasn't so expensive.
