make sure your flip kit comes w/ shackles, or you'll have a 2"/6" drop!
I know there are some 2/4s here ....look at the thread "are there any lowered trucks here" its older.

The 2002 to 2008 trucks have the rear leaf spring under the shackle 1994 to 2001 are over the rear shackle...so when you filp a 2002 to 08 if you dont get a longer shackle to raise it 2" you get a 6" drop

Those that have done lowering kits.... would you mind sharing how much the labor to have the kit installed was(if you didnt do it yourself)? Ive gotten 1 estimate so far on a 2/5 or 2/4: parts around 500, and labor/install around 400-500$.

I finally got my 2/4 drop done today! I'll have pics soon. I thought i'd share my info. i got the McGaughys economy kit from streetpros.com It was $413 or somewhere around that price. I paid $312 today with tax to have it installed. Only took half a day. It rides great. I have no complaints so far and it looks awesome! Get as many estimates as you can, the first place i went to tried to charge me over $900 JUST IN LABOR and said it would take more than one day to complete! Hope this helps anyone reading this. But I'm pretty streetpros had the best price on the kit.

Is there enough clearance all the way around for the SRT-10 wheels with a 2/4 drop? Have you experienced any rubbing at all?
