Here they are...

DJM 3" control arms, DJM 5" shackles/hangers, and Bell-Tech Nitro Drop shocks. I had to custom fab. some new bump stops. Thing rides alot better than it did before the drop...which I though was odd but sweet.

Here are a few Q's I have for the all-knowing here...
- The fender lips are the part of the fender that curves under and is above the tire, and the plastic is connected to that, correct? If so, how would I go about rolling them under?
- The bottom of my truck is perfectly parallel to the ground...but I have noticable differences in the front and back fender wells. Are the rear wells larger than the front wells....or did I not get a full 5" drop back there. I know you are saying "you should have measured before and after." Well I did. I was rushing and may have measured wrong.

KotaOn18's - Yea, they stick out some. 275/45/20's are my tires....everyone told me that I couldnt do a 3/5 with that size tire, but i did. :) Even with the custom bumpstops there is some tire-to-frame scraping when going fast on bumpy roads. In the last week, thats happened about 3 times. Before the bump stop were on there, i couldn't even drive on smooth roads with out slamming on the tires.

YOU DONT HAVE TO DO ALL THAT NOW. I hate to say it, but every one says you can't be cheap when it comes to suspensions....and Sprint Tech isnt exactly the "cream of the crop" vato.

Sell that kit and get you a DJM kit with bell-tech shocks....its a real good ride. I'm sure those paper thin tires have somthing to do with the rough ride also, ;)

These pics don't do the truck any justice, It looks pretty nice in person. But still, I'm never satisfied so I plan on buying me a boat the tuckin' some 22's. :)
