drop

What is the best way to drop a truck without sacraficing the feel of the ride. Should I go with drop spindles on the front or just drop springs. I will be able to afford airbags later. Any info would be nice.

BOTH.........


Dropped spindles and drop springs both work good. The dropped spindles do NOT affect the ride at all. Drop Springs, as a general rule, are shorter (but the same spring rate) lower the truck but the ride is diminished a little.

DO NOT use cut springs. For every 1 coil you remove, the spring rate goes up....
