Here it is with 3 inch springs and shackles. Finshing the hangers tomorrow.
So are you flipping or doing hangers and shackles out back? Flip kit will give you 6" and hanger/shackles will give you 4". Did you check the part numbers on the springs to make sure they were the correct ones?

I was doing hangers b/c I thought it was only 2 inches in front and I was going for 4 inches in rear. I ended up doing the flip kit. I took everything off a couple of days ago and sold the parts. I may lower it again later. The part numbers say they were 2/3 belltech springs.
