Which kit these days are better? I had MCG on my NNBS with spindles and I was satisfied with there product. I was wondering when doing the front is spindles still the way to go so I don't have to mess with sagging springs etc. Also on a crew cab in order to lower the rear can I use a hanger/shackle kit or do I have to flip then lift up, or replace the leafs and shackle? I really don't want to flip and would rather do a hanger/shackle kit instead. If you have any pics of a 2/4 nbs crews that you could post that would be great too.

i know that crews have welded hangers, not the typical rivets, so hangers are out, if you want a 2/4 drop id go with spindles or coils upfront, and a flipkit with lift shackles and a notch out back is cheaper than a set of drop leafs

check out this thread too, lots of crews, makes me want to lower mine

No hangers...damn thats what i was afraid of. I notice they were welded and wanted to hear from people on hear that it couldn't be done. I wonder which shackle will allow the most rear drop since I know some are longer than others.

someone questioned this the other day, had driveshaft concerns, I want to go 4/6 with mine when I wear my tires, but I share the other guys concern about x members and driveshaft issues.

most dont have issues or rub the one piece slightly, or will replace it with a two piece driveshaft, i had a friend who was 4.5/7.5 with his one piece, but any lower than 6" and i see a problem. check out trilogys truck for a good 4/6

Get helpers and you can ride 4/6 with that 1piece. Im going 5/7 so im gonna try and get mine to work if it doesnt then ill just grab a 2piece.
