everyone on here says that the drop coil and flip only will not give you the lowered look you are looking for, but its all about what you want to do... if you don't want to lower it too low then yea a 2" coil and a flip kit will work for you if you want lower then get a 2" spring and the djm drop arms and a rear flip kit for a 5" drop and some shocks and you'll be set

I want to run 20's so i was thinking with a 2/2 drop and the rims it will get rid of the gap

Hey i don't think you'll get an even 2/2 drop for the simple fact that the axle alone is at least a 3 inch tube so it would be a 2/3 drop and still be able to run 20's but i've seen people tuck 20's as long as you get the right back space, on a 4/5 drop

Sry im not doing a flip kit Im doing a flip and reverse of the rear shackle. I want something that is good for daily driivng so I want to go with a thicker tire for the sidewall like a 45 or a 50 series.
