2/3 Lowering Kit

I've decided I want to lower my truck and I have some questions. I am probably going to go with the DJM 2/3 lowering kit. Does anyone have any pics of this kit on their trucks? How was the install? And finally will my stock P225/70R15 wheels be fine with the kit?

you can run stock tires with both but on 4/5 on hard bumps it will rub.. go 4/5 you will end up doing it anyways

wrong you'll rub bad with 225/70/15 on bumps and everytime time you turn it.

That's what I was afraid of. I just spent $400 on new tires and I don't want to buy new ones right away after I lower it. If it wasn't going to rub I would go 4/5 but I guess I am leaning towards 2/3 right now.

ALOT of folks go 2/3...then they go 4/5 cuz they want it lower. Sell your old wheels/tires....get some used 17" stang wheels or something. Go 4/5. Do it right the first time. Waste of money to 2/3 it, only to 4/5 it later.

There was rubbige with the 15" combo.

4/5 w/ 15x7 & 225/75R15s:


4/5 w/ 17" Cobras & 245/45R17:
