Default Re: Truck not level after DJM 2/3 drop

I also have the 2/3 DJM drop installed, and after reading this I checked mine and sure enough I was sitting on em. Wondered why it rode like shit! HA! Cut em in half and rides so much better, I think it looks a bit lower in the front too, which is good cause I thought the rear looked lower than the front anyhow.

My 2/3 rides just like stock, it actually dropped me 3/4. I havent replaced my shocks yet, Im waiting for when I go 5/6. I have also added a BII rear and 4x4 front sway bar since I dropped it, which significantly improved the ride quality and stiffness. Its a little bouncy in the front still for me, which will change with new shocks or when I convert to coil-over. The back of the truck rides great.

I know this is an old thread but...

Anybody know if the DJM coils settle any? I have the 2.3 and not the heavier v6 and I havent got a 2" drop from them as listed. I have the hangar flip done in the rear (2" drop) and the front is visibly higher. I dont want to have to cut them...

Bumpstop is halved. It's been 5 days since install. Also, passenger side is 1" higher than drivers side, maybe because of the weight of the battery?
