I currently have a 3/4 drop on my truck and I'm kicking myself for not going with the 4/6 from the start. :flame: I still have the factory hangers but not the shackles. I want to go to a 4/6 since its my DD. I found a good deal on the flip kit and could go ahead and put it on but I would have to hold off on the front and leave it a 3" for now. Gonna do that when I get new tires, I don't think the 275/45/20 will fit with a 4" front drop. I just wanted to know how it would look at 3/6 for awhile. I already have 2" spindles and a 1" coil up front.

Does anyone have pics of a 3/6 drop???


here is what mine looks like right now

i know the 275/45s will work for sure on NBS but like you said, i've read where they didnt on the OBS. 3/6 will still look good though. I dont know if you've got a set of shackles. If so, run a 5/7 when you lower the front:imo

id go 5/7 if i were you. as you can see 3/7 isnt close to level, and a 3/6 isnt either. my 5/7 was pretty close though

i wouldn't go any lower then a 4/6 on a DD, when you go lower you'll have to raise your crossover pipe (it'll bash pavement on every dip/hard bump), and get used to you're front air dam scraping (not that its a bad thing lol) the biggest tire you could fit in the front is a 275/40, save the 275/45's for the rear, that's my setup on a 4/6 drop and it tucks tire in the rear, i could get some pics of my 0/2, 4/2, and 4/6 drops if ya want lol

3/7 looks level imo. 4 more inches in the rear than in the front is level i think

ya the y-pipe sucks with anything lower than 4/6. a few times i was looking in my rear view to make sure there wasnt a big puddle of oil on the ground

4/2 drop

on obs trucks the rear was slightly lifted 2"stock, so to be leveled you'll want the rear to be 2" drop more than the front
