lol

im on my 4th drop kit install....all DJM kits too now that i think about it....

and they really make it cake to install.

honestly i think the 6 hours it takes to install the kit (average imo) is worth it.

for the most part i did the last one solo with the exeption of a hand here and there to get things squared in/away....and thats cuz im kinda slow sometimes haha

call a few friends over and knock it out.

imo if you can change brakes, you can do a drop kit....its kinda hard to mess up...

took us a little longer then that to do mine, since my truck has been hit before, it had collapsed the frame around the spring, so needless to say we had a big ass pry bar, and a bottle jack to get the frame to pop back out...lol

Man I miss seeing that mazda it would of looked so clean with the hood painted to match!

Being one with the extcab v6 it rides pretty good, but I am going to bring the front up an inch because I think I may have gotten more like 5" drop up front. I am almost riding on the bump stops.
