Post Dropping my 90 2/4

I'm not into slammed trucks but I think trucks that are dropped a little look pretty tight so I'm interested in a 2/4 drop on my 90 Sierra.... I wanted to go w/ a DJM or Belltech drop...Which is better or is there a difference.... What kind of profile looks best on a truck dropped 2/4 w/ 16in. rims a 60 profile is what I was thinking.

I was gonna do that drop too, but then I thought, AIRBAGS, best of all worlds. I have always liked Bell Tech products that I have used. They have a great reputation for quality. I have never needed to modify any Bell Tech product I have ever used which is something I can't say about lowering products from another major company. I know a buddy tried DJM lowering products and said they worked out very well for him. I think either Bell Tech or DJM would be a good choice. I think you could use a 245/60 or 255/60 on a 16 inch rim for the "right size" on your truck.

Wheels make the biggest difference in how your vehicle appears I would run at least 17's with 50 or 55 series tires.
Just my opinion.
I plan on doing the airbag thing too.
In the mean time I'm getin 2" shackles to level it out.
BTW: I have a 91 Ext. Cab Short Bed.
