I have an 03 extended cad with a 3/4 drop, and I'm thinking of going to a 4/6. I have hangers and shackles in the rear that are both adjustable from 1 to 2 inch. From what I have read, if I do a flip kit, I have to have the stock hangers and shackles which I do not have. So, my question is, what are my options to get a 5 to 6 drop in the rear? Also, is there something I have to do to the driveshaft if I do more than 4 inches?

Thanks in advance for any answers I get.

u can do drop shackels wit the flip kit and im pretty sure u can do hangers too but it has to be one or the other... my truck is a crew cab(one piece driveshaft) and its lowered 5 8 and i have no issues u have a EC so its a 2 piece u shouldnt have any prob but im not sure.. alot of ppl do a "notch" to make clearance for the driveshaft...

You can get drop leafs, but that's not the best way imo. Best way would be to get stock hangers and shackles then do a flip kit. Then if you ever want to go to 7 or 8" drop you can just put the shackles back on.
