Re: Need pics 60-66 (slammed not bagged)

I haven't dropped the rear of mine yet, but the front has 3" drop springs, and I stepped the lower control arms 1-1/2". Total of 4-1/2" in front. The rear is going to have manual-fill airbags.

Re: Need pics 60-66 (slammed not bagged)

Two coils ut up front and Jeep TJ springs plus 3" blocks in the rear. The front is pretty much on the trimmed bumpstops and the rear is about an inch off. The rear rides good, the front not so good. 1 1/2 coils is probably about perfect.






***EDITED TO ADD***
The tires are 235/75/16

Cut your stops off and the bracket that hold them. It will ride fine.
