I'm getting ready to purchase everything and I'm wondering how big of a block can I go with without notching with belltech drop leafs? 2"? 3"? Any input would be appreciated.

if i recall correctly...i think someone said 4inches total is the lowest you can drop before notching the frame. dont take me on that though.

also you have to take into consideration what cab you have. a crew cab with the drop leafs will be lower than a reg cab with the same leafs.

I've got leafs and 3" blocks...but I'm notched. I would think with a 3" block without notching you'd have to remove all the bump stops...pretty sure you'd be sitting on the frame. Why not just notch it? it was pretty easy and inexpensive.

yeah, i'm on 3 inch blocks and i kill the bump stops. I need to trim them down a bit, so i'm not sure what i would do with springs and blocks. Maybe 2s?

Just try it with the leafs and a 2" block and see. Every truck is different. I have 4" blocks in the rear and have not touched my bumpstops back there...I think I could get another inch easy...
