I'm at 4/5 on my daily driver and it's completely fine. I still use it for moving and can go over speedbumps without raised crossmembers and such. It's just the right amount of wheel tuck without being too low that I scrape on all sorts of obstacles.

If I lower 4&5 what size tire do I need to run? It has 225/75/15s now

You actually use the 3/4 components to go 4/5.

4/5 is the 3/4 kit with 1" drop springs in the front and 1" blocks in the back.

haha. That wouldn't help. I would just get beams and flip the shackles, which, when added to my springs and flip kit, would give me 4/5 or more like 5/6.

Sorry

looks like the OP has a 2000 which has control arms not Ibeams. I would say do the DJM 4/5 kit
