*Update* Dealer states ALL 4 tires were WAY out of spec and could not be balanced. Ordered 4 more but have to send it to Les Schwab to mount cause their machine only goes up to 20's. Should have it back tomorrow. I'm thinking the tires must have settled from sitting for a long time in one spot? Don't know what else makes any sense. Glad they gave me a free rental.

I have had the Mcgaughy's 2/4 econo drop (without spindles) on my 10 quad cab for about
5,000 miles now no real issues, as long as you take it easy over speed bumps. still have the stock shocks on there.

I just got the McGaughy's 2/4 spindle kit and so far I like it. It DOES make the front tires stick out further than the back but unless you're looking down the side you really can't tell. It seems to ride a little stiffer and the shop that put it in had to grind a little off the spindle's where they rubbed the ball joints. For some reason it pulls bad to the left but I think the alignment shop was half asleep when they did it, gotta take it back Monday.

I wanted the Belltech but it was on backorder until Novermber and I got the McGaughy's for $450 instead of the normal price(thank you price match).

It bottoms out that easy? How many total miles on your ride?

Sounds like you had a few issues there, hope you get the alignment right.

It doesn't bottom out easily driving normally, but over speed bumps it will hit the bump stops in the back. 7200 miles total on the truck.
