You can uncrank your torsion bars and remove the block in the rear, that should give you about a 2" drop.

anything is possible with the right tools and enough money. theres only a couple people that have slammed an edge, well actually only one i can think of, and he made custom suspension parts and used pricey coil overs to get that low

Re-indexed torsion keys http://shop.illusivefabrications.com...-torsion-keys/ remove your rear lift block and flip your rear hangers and shackles this will give you up to a 3/4 drop. I would also highly recommend going with a set of Doetsch Nitro Slammer shocks http://shop.illusivefabrications.com...nitro-slammer/
