My rear is a flip kit, 2" shackles and 1.25" nnbs blocks and measures out to 9".

As for the front you can do 2" spindles and 3" coils trimmed for the extra inch or 2" spindles and 4" drop control arms. I have djm arms on mine and I wouldn't recommend them.

Now if you can fit them in the budget, coilovers are the best option. 2" spindles and coilovers set at whatever height you are happy with. They will ride/handle much better than any other setup.

I'd look into some nicer shocks from qa1, ridetech or fox. Being that low sucks with cheap shocks.

I already have 2" shackles what if I remove my rear block would it still work??
Not sure how to take that question.

A flip kit will give you 6", add 2" shackles for 8" and whatever size blocks for more drop. You can run that setup at 8" with no blocks. Obviously you'll need to notch the frame.

I got mine from another member a couple of years ago. You could possibly find them at a junk yard or just make a wanted ad here in the fs section.

dakota you're like the static lord. Any idea how low you can go in the rear without cutting the bed?

You mean as far as trimming for the pumpkin? That's something I'd recommend at 8" or lower. I was at like 9" and hadn't trimmed mine but it was too late then. I pinched my rear brake line in half. No brakes in traffic = not fun. Lol.

I've already trimmed for the pumpkin, I mean without cutting for a notch that comes through the bed

Ah gotcha. I'd say 10" with an underbed notch. Lower than that and you be really close to sitting in the notch. I managed to get 9.5" with bolt in notches but it sat in them without air in the helpers. And that eventually led to a broken frame after an accident.

Got it oh and I have a friend that is selling 4" control arms but they where modified for bags. If I take off the plate where the bag sits will they still be usable
