2" drop springs for the front. Do not put in dropped control arms with dropped spindles on a static drop.

You'll have to re-install your stock S/H units for the rear and add the flip kit for a 6" drop.

As far as replacing the overload spring...you don't need to but it won't hurt. Kinda depends if you wanna haul stuff around. I probably wouldn't bother with putting it back in since if you really wanna haul a good load with a 4/6 you'd want to install a air assist kit anyhow.

get rid of all that shit, you will thank yourself down the road for it, just ask FullThrottleDan and his imploded rear flip kit. Get a quality 4/6 kit and dont reuse any of the AIM :crap:

A drop spindle w/ a drop arm would make the drop arms run so low to the ground.....not to mention would probably rub the inner lip of the rim if it would even rotate.
