what do you guys think of this combo.

2” Drop Ball Joints Part# 2103

3” Lowering Blocks W/ U-Bolts Part# 6210

will this give me a level ride and not rub shit. Also is there anything else you guys would recommend dropping the front with.

maybe this. Drop Front Shock 0"/-1"/-2" Part# 25005

It'll look lower because you have the body kit. The ride won't be bad at 1st, but you will rub. Then you'll rub more and more over time. The back will ride decent, but no cadillac. There'll be some axle-frame contact every now and then. Overall, you'll be suprised by how decent the ride is. It's not going to beat the shit out of you or anything like that. But over time, you may get tired of it, probably around the time where your stock shocks give out! LOL

Same set up I have....although I do believe on the extremes you will rub the fender flare in the front ever so slightly....


Ride is decent.....but like josh said....when the shocks give out...you will know.

when i done my drop i found out i had had a busted shock on my front :shrug: i hadn't even noticed the difference with it busted than before. but it was replaced :355: now i can tell the difference. i think mine was a defect, cause it had rode the same for as long as i could remember, and when the new(well new shock, it was a stock shock lol), andi could tell the ride was difference. it was pullin bad bad BAD to the left and with the new shock nothin whatsoever :355: but anyway about your truck INTIMID8R man it should be an okay drop. my truck rubbed the swaybar before the drop soi can't imagine now :eek: lol. but w/e setup you do make sure and post up so we can see progress :)
