couple inches if that, drop the spring brackets like i did, gain you a few inches, then run the shackle, and run some 5.5" or 7.5" chevy lifts springs.

lol...Trevor and I were doing the math the other day......I could whip out the tape later if needed....


Beltech 6400 : 7"? eye to eye = 1.5" lift

RCD lift shackle : 9" eye to eye = ?

Stock ford : 4.5"? eye to eye = stock



(? = I believe that's right, not positive)
