lol your nuts, i cut 2 of my coils originally, and i had -6 degrees camber, wich doesnt equate to a 5 inch drop. you can get 2-3 inches from cut coils, thats it.

I have a DJM 4/5 drop and to get that low, we cut one coil off the front spring, It looked nice but rubbed way too much, So we put a belltech 1" spring spacer on it and it sits perfect now, no rubbing and handles great. I did however remove the inner fender liners because it would rub those on turns.

So no undue scraping? what size tires are those, 'cause I rub with just 4". Hell, I don't even know if my tires would tuck.

this is how it sits now with the djm 4/5 drop, 1 coil cut off the front springs, and a belltech 1" spacer on the front.

What size tires are those? The tire clearance looks about the same as mine with the DJM arms and Roush coils.

Still, 'twould be sick if we could get that low static. Hmmmmm, I now have something to shoot for.

The reason I asked, was most bagged trucks have alot more camber when aired out, and your rims look pretty straight. Me likey!
