    here's the front. it's suppose to be a 5" drop all around. is there any thing i can do to fix it. heat the coils or cut them.

    Give your coils a little while to break in and then the front will come down a little more.

    I think most people usually go with a 1" more drop in the back to make it level out... like I see alot of people that go 3-4 or 4/5 or 5/6 so that the front and back are level... i know my truck could use a little more in the back to make it level.. but yours, it needs more drop in the front.. thats odd.. I'll have to agree with Blazin89 and say wait a bit while your coils settle down and hopefully they will begin to level out a bit

While killing over 100,000 Turks in 1098, the Christians "did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy's] tents - save that they ran their lances through their bellies," according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.

    if it sits more then an inch higher in front you'll most-likely need to do something other just waiting for them to break in.

    Yeah, you got the wrong coil springs..you may have gotten the 1" coils..

    The Blaz is looking good, though. Even with missed match drop. ;)

    You could cut a coil off your current springs, or just take them out and send them back to who ever you bought them from and ask for 3" coils..or at least goto a shop and compare the coils to 3" coils.

    Thanks, my friend said he could heat them or cut them it was up to me. I just wanted to know which would be best. as much as i would like to i don't think i will change them.i'm in hawaii and it was hard getting that stuff here i really don't want to start over. i've come to far to turn back.
