youll need more than coils if you want your truck to handle good.

if anything the ride will be worse with drop coils on stock arms.

I plan to just run the 2" Roush coils and flip the rear hanger with stock shocks until I can afford new ones.. right now the ride is very bouncy with the lift and 31"s, hope it firms out with new coils and less tire..
