I forgot about the 17's that came with that size tire. He said he had 20's so that didn't even cross my mind. The 04's with 20's may have still had the 275/55/20's which are about 32" tall. However he goes, if he's only got a 30" tall tire he can run a 4/6 without problem.

I have the 22" SRT rims on 305 45's all I have so far is the rear shackle kit but am about to buy either a 2/4 or 3/5. Do you think it would still be alot of work with the 3/5? I found a kit from Max Suspension that sells both the 2/4 and 3/5 for 299 bucks. That's coils and rear flip kit. What all would have to be done to do the 3/5? This is my first lowering project.

A friend of mine has a 3/5 on his with SRT's and 305/40's and he has rubbing problems in the back so I would almost count on it with the 305/45's. You shouldn't have any problems with a 2/4 though.
If they are selling a 3" drop coil, be prepared to do some grinding to the alignment slots to get it to align.

thanks for the heads up. May just stick with the 2-4 since I pull my 4 wheeler sometimes. But it would look soooo good lowered that extra inch... how bad is his rub? Is it just rubbing on the wheel well?
