Ya im pretty sure there set up just like the 4x4s actually. leaf over axle so you gotta do a flip to really slam it. Thats why i did the shackles. Im sure if i coulda used blocks i would have

ya it basically leveled the truck out. looked pretty good but i thought maybe adding drop leafs in the back and 2" drop coils up front woulda been nice and that way i could turn it back stock if i wanted. Do an axle flip and your getting into cutting and welding
