    anyone done a 6/7 drop? i have some ?'s

    im thinking of doing a 6/7 drop using 3"djm arms djm 3" coils
    djm 4" blocks and Ground force 3" leafs.

    they sell MONO leafs and Multi-leafs which should i go with
    monos are $115
    multi are $84

    what brond shocks should i use?

    im also wondering if a bolt in notch will give me enough axle clearance?

    GHETTO....

    You can't drop a truck like that. The most you can drop a S-series PROPERLY is 5/6 using 3" coils, 2" drop spindles, 3" drop leafs and 3" blocks. You could use 4" blocks but your rear will be probably be lower than the front.

    its just wayyy to low for anything youll be like 3/4 from laying out. most people just bag it being that low, and youll have to run like a 205/55 or 205/50 to not rub in the front im sure. i have a 5/6 drop on 205/55 and 205/60 and another inch would be close tot he fender lip

    Read what I said above..

    And now I'll say this to simplifiy it, you CAN'T use drop coils with lowered CA's. You're supposed to use stock coils with them. Now read what I said and that's how you drop it properly. Any low if ghetto cuz it means you've cut shit up and put the wrong components together and are putting yourself and others in danger.

    I hope that clears it up for you, now if you want to go low look at what I said above, that's as long as you can go.

    You should be able to run a 195/60/15 or a 205/50/16, both are skinny tires so you should have any rubbing problems.

    If you are talking about 2nd gen, yes, Im pretty sure you will rub with a 4/5. I rubbed on almost every turn with a 3/3 and 235/70/15's.

    Just because somebody you know has it done, doesn't make it safe or right. It's still a pretty ghetto drop and very unrealistic depending on where you live. That thing wouldn't make it out of most parking lots around where I live.
