4/5 not gonna happen

you got torsion bars. You can crank the torsion bars down to lower it and remove the rear block off the rear axle.

There was a guy who lowered his edge 4/5 and it was all custom fabrication.

wrong truck to lower, youll never get it below a 2/2 drop like casper said unless you drop a ton of money into it.

you will need to make some kind of coil suspension, your better off selling the truck and buying one with coil suspension

or frame swap it...




Frame swap to a 98+ coilspring truck with a 4/5 could end up being cheaper than a full custom setup. I see rolling frames for sale for under $1000. You don't even need a rolling frame....just the bare frame because the rear set up is the exact same(save for blocks) and the front is ALL NEW in the 4/5 kit (save for the spindles).

You can do a 3/4 drop on an edge pretty easy, the rear is free other than shocks and the front I sell reindexed torsion keys. You can crank your torsion bars down but it does have some adverse effects. You can email me if you need any more information for the fastest replys brian@illusivefabrications.com
