Re: Lets see some before and after pics

I dropped it.... then I put 24s on it. 4.5 drop in front .....
Inner fenders are out..... but rubs in that inside of the outter fender, so that has to be shaved....... may or maynot bag it...

Re: Lets see some before and after pics

I would have to run 275/25/24 in front, for me to run a 4.5 drop in front... I put my stock coils back on today... I looked at a height chart 265/35/22 is just .5 shorter than 275/25/24
