    if i could afford a $500 welding machine then i would be up to doing the tubbing process myself, but i live in an apartment, so i dont even have a garage.

    Raise truck up to 4/7 until you get in a better financial position, this isn't rocket science. If you cant afford tubs then you shouldn't have went 5/9

    Been awhile since I posted in here. Sold truck in August after getting it down to about 7/11 drop. Front consisted of 2" Spindles, Belltech Struts, 2" Drop Springs, factory raised upper tubs. Rear Unkown Flip Kit, 2 or 3" blocks with belltech drop shocks. Frame was underbed notched, rear was tubbed and one piece driveshaft with Helpers. Sat on 295/30/24s.

    so i am going to make a post in here since you guys might know the problem/ solution.

    so i have a 2500hd sierra duramax it is lowered around 3" in the front with out any problems with the stock geometry.

    in the back i have 3" shackles and the overload leaf removed giving me a total of 4" of drop.

    i have ordered belltech 2211ff shocks for the rear but they seem to be over extended a little.

    now i could lower the truck a bit more as i have a bit of rake any way but there seems to not be a good/ cheap way to go about this.

    plz let me know what you think

    below is a pic of the truck and the shock with the truck sitting on the ground.

    You could always throw in some shock extenders if you are worried about overextension. There's really no good way to go 4 or 5 in the rear of these trucks. To get there, you'd have to do a flip kit with new hangers and shackles. With yours being a dmax, the components may not even provide the same drop. If you haven't, give a shout to Kris @SportTruckPros and she can probably help you out.
