The 5" drop will usually require brackets that relocate the lower trailing arm, shorter sway bar links, and shock extenders or new shocks. On the DJM rear kit for the NNBS suburban, I had to move the sway bar over 3/4 inch and drill new holes for the bracket. You also might want to cut off the bumpstop bracket to gain more travel. I had my 07 sub at a 3/5 and 24's, but now have it leveled with dune grapplers on 22" centerlines. Here's an old pic at 2/4 with the 24's. I don't have any pics at 3/5, it only lasted a few months.

You have a NBS right? I was going ot get a 2/3 drop and a friend told me that i was not going to be satisfied and needed to go with a 3/5. Im glad i listened. The ride isnt bad for as low as you go. You must do the free travel mod ( remove bump stop brackets and put smaller bumpstops in ) this will gain a lot more travel this way. Here is some pics of my shit. 3/5 with 22's

matt14... u got a 3/5 drop? it does not look like u have that much of a drop how come i seen 3/5 drops that look like ther on the floor
I diddnt measure before i installed the kit, but we think we got like a 2.75 /4.75 drop. Any pics of " 3/5 lookin like there on floor?" some people adjust the t bars so they can get more up front. I like it level
