DJM Front Control Arms w/ Stock Spring

If I understanding this correctly, I can use the DJM Upper & Lower Control Arms with the factory front spring and still achieve a 2" drop in the front. Am I thinking correctly on this one guys?

Also, what shocks does everyone suggest for a near stock ride on a 2/3 drop? Thanks

Ryan

You are correct.


You're shock and coil height doesn't change when using the upper and lower arms, so stock shocks work just fine.

rule of thumb is 2" up or 2" down, stock shocks are fine. I'd still rock 'em. I don't personally know what length shocks to go with on a 3" application. Maybe someone who knows will chime in.


BTW....please create a signature telling us your year, model, trim, engine, trans, drivetrain, etc.... helps us help you.

Well you can drop the front with some coils and the rear you can do a shackle flip since you are looking to tow still. With the shackle flip, you shouldn't lose any payload. Both the coils and shackle flip can give you 2" of drop all around.
