Default 3/5 drop clearance question?

Hi i have a few questions and was hoping i could get some of them answered.... Im thinking about doing a 3/5 which would include drop control arms and a flip kit for the rear with air shocks out back and some better than stock replacement front shocks... I wanna go pretty low and close the wheel gap to about an inch or 2 above the top of the tire. Im just curious what everyone els has done and ideas for it....


Lowering a full size truck is new to me, the last one i ever had lowered was a 2002 s10 which was a 3/4 on stock wheels and tires and never had an issue...

I'm not sure what your asking specifically,
but the 5" drop in back will put yur axle pretty much next to the frame...

a C-notch is almost required for anything >4" in back
