Cheap and lowering do not belong in the same sentence. Cut coils ride like crap and a lot of times are unsafe to other people on the road. The cheapest way to lower is 2" drop coils and flip the rear hangers and shackles for a 2/2 drop or do beams and flip kit for 3/4 drop.

There are a lot of people popping up wanting to lower their truck all the sudden. I guess gas prices are getting to high to ride high. And people before you make a thread about something, please use the search button. It does work.

Lol I know brain but he asked I told I have cut belltech springs that I'm about to replace to put the V8 in.

Also I've ordered ñotches and shocks from brain and both were positive experiences

Drop beam installation is not that bad if you have the tools, any competent shop should be able to install them in about an hour on a lift. Without that it could take you a day or so in your driveway.

Dropped&chopped I offer, 2/2, 2/3, 3/3, 3/5, 4/5, 5/5, 5/6 drops for the 98+ coils spring rangers. The web site is in my signature below or you can email me with questions to brian@illusivefabrications.com
