I am just wondering what kits people recommend to lower my truck? I have only looked into McGaughy's which seems like the way to go. How easy is it to install? I know I can only go 3/5 which is fine because winters in New England suck. Any insight helps and will be appreciated.

Thank you :lemon:

A lot of people on here have both mcg and belltech. The mcg guys seem to switch to belltech shocks.

So anybody that can add more to the belltech shocks would be appreciated as well. Are you buying the whole belltech kit or the bellteck lowering shocks with McG lowering kit? What shocks if so are best?

Thanks

I have a mcg 4/7 on my ccsb. The mcg rear shocks are pretty soft, borderline bouncy which is probably why a lot of guys swap to belltech shocks. Ive ran belltech sp shocks on my nbs and never had any complaints. I am running belltech drop struts up front and definitely recommend them. Both belltech and mcg kits are quality parts.

How low are you looking to go is the question. Belltech does hands down have the better shocks but depending on how low you want to go may not have an option for you

I've read I can only go a 3/5 with my AWD setup. Ultimately I want the best ride I can with no rub!!! I'm guessing I can prob go lower like 4/6 but have to notch the bed and tub the front wheel wells? I want to throw a set of 26s on it after.

This is my 4wd at 6/7. No issues. Raised up to 4/7 due to new wheels having taller tires

Okay so I love that stance both ways and your truck is sick ... I think a 4/6-4/7 is what I would like!!! What do you have for a complete set up??

It's mostly belltech. Struts, spindles up front for 4" and just a flip kit an belltech shocks in rear. Also have mcguaghy helper bags with onboard air compressor

Damn that thing sits perfect!! Do you have to notch for helper bags?? Does that serve the purpose of a smoother ride??

Has helpers. Needs a notch for sure lol. My leaf springs are sagging or something. Seems to .5"-1" lower than others with the same drop. The bags do help a lot with the ride. In the pic with the tbss wheels it has about 20 psi in. Raises the rear up about 2"

I do recommend staying the the 3/5 to 4/6 range. I had a customer who went 5/7 ended up just having issues with the CVs.

Did you want me to build you a kit based on what I have read in the thread?

Yes that would be awesome ... I want to be able to have a awesome ride and fit 26s with no issues and no notching of any sort! Thank you very much!!!
