I need new tires soon, so I'm debating if I should go with a mild lift or mild drop. Can you guys post your rides with a 2/4 and 22's? or stock with 22's? I'm trying to find the right look I want.

Sorry I forgot to add, preferably 2wd crews. Sorry I tried to search but couldn't find nothing

Also, anyone running the 3.23 gears with 22's? How does that affect mileage, or overall performance with the bigger/heavier tires?

I don't want to go lower for a couple of reasons, I've seen trucks with the 4/6 and to me its just too low, and 2 I don't want to be notching my frame.

2/4 2WD 2006 Crew Cab 1500... 2/4 w/ bags in back on 22s... If you plan on hauling ANYTHING with a 2/4 drop, you will hit the frame.

Solutions:

1.) Notch
2.) Air Assist Bags (AirRide SlamAir kit #59103)
3.) Don't put anything in the bed

I know a lot of people do notches, but its just not my thing for now, we'll see in like a year or so though.

SuperchargedSS, you got a nice truck, I was looking at some of your pictures earlier and that would be the look that I want. I totally hear you on the drop size and practicality, exactly what I'm shooting for. If I do get a drop eventually I would probably get helper bags in the rear, how much did your set cost?

Thanks, I will keep that in mind. I've been reading that both versions of the McGaughy spindles hurt the turning radius, do you notice a big difference from factory especially with the 22's?

2/4 on stocks.. pm him for some pics of stock height with 22's as he used to have that setup

and the rumor holds true for him too-he wishes he had gone lower than 2/4

I didn't pay $600 for my 4/6 McGaughys. I think streetbeatcustoms.com has the 2/4 with spindles for like $450

Chevycrews truck doesn't look that low, maybe its the wheels. I kind of like it. BTW nice M3, one day I'm gonna try and find one.

big difference between the 2/4 on your extended cab and the 2/4 on my crew cab...

The 16" McGaughys spindles might affect it, but I didnt have any problems with my turning radius. The turning radius on a crew cab sucks to begin with... Mine are the 17" McGaughys Spindles...

Also, keep in mind, to lower a crew cab requires 2" shackles and 2" dropped leaf springs in the rear, not a hanger and shackle as required on extended cab and standard cab fullsize pickups....
