No rubbing at all the ride is as comfy as it was the first day I bought it except it handles hell of a lot better...My brothers ram on the other hand had rubbing issues i think his shocks were bad so he f up his fenders from the inside...I never had that problem....Even over bigger bumps i dont rub...Do it you wont regret it the ride looks better and it handles much better...No wheel gap

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.
Thank you! I will definitely do some more looking around.
Now the question is, 2/4 or 4/6?

To the OP, i like the black rims with the red paint. You see so many red/chrome combos, and hardly any red/black combos so yours really stands out more from the crowd!

I was also thinking about 4/6 but the roads around here...I dont think so...Once you change your springs your ride quality falls also..With spindles you dont change nothing....I love 2/4 because it almost looks like its supposed to come from factory like that...It gives you that safe felling if you know what I mean...I had a s10 with 4/6 drop and I hated the ride quality on it...Felt every bump on the road and scraped on almost anything..4/6 looks, but i wouldnt sacrifice the ride quality that 2/4.5 gives you for that extra drop...

remember with 4/6 you will spend a lot more money also because you will need to change your shocks, and also would be a good idea to c notch it...You are talking almost triple the money...

I think the 2/4 looks good. Really wish I could find a 1/3, but might have to settle for the 2/4.
