1" Drop Coil?

Gentlemen, (er... and ladies?)

Does anyone know who sells a 1" drop coil? I have DJM drop Upper and Lower Control arms, with a stock coil in the front. Now I had Drop leafs in the rear which I changed out for a flip kit with stock leafs. Now my A$$ end is lower then my front end. NOT acceptable. I don't think I can do much lower then 1" in the front because I run 22" rims in the summer, and i'm afraid I'll tear off a fender hitting a bump. So I wonder if there's a 1" drop coil out there? or any ideas how to slightly raise a flip kit? LOL.. Raise a flip kit.. kinda contradicting.

Thx guys!

you can cut a half coil to get 1" no one sells 1" drop coils only 2" and 3". with your flip kit are you running your stock shackles? if so a set of lifting Shackles will lit your truck up 1-2" depending on the hole you use

The rear shackles came with a lower shackle for 3" and 5" drop. Currently in the 3" hole. a set of lift shackles may be the trick tho. Thx! As for cutting the coils, not entirely a huge fan. I'll do that as a VERY last resort.

Not confident in cutting the coils? I have had mine cut for 40k miles no issues and the ride barely changed. I would highly recommend you research "cutting coils" before you spend the cash on just an inch. I hope that does'nt come off in a rude way. Just trying to save you some money.
