Very nice looking. Ever thought of painting your billet grille black now to match?

I am running 1.25 inch spacers. They are flush with the fender flares and I'm happy with that. I don't want something that drives like a turd.

Folks.. a 2/3 drop on an edge suspension will give the stance roughly the SAME profile.



I took about 4 inches out of the front, removed the rear blocks and had custom leafs made that are basically flat. its a 4/5 drop when all the math is done.. *** end STILL sticks up.

A 2/4 drop would look nice with his bigger tires ( 29-30 inches tall ) . Even with 2 inches of drop in his front end, his front wheel won't be centered in the wheel-well , it will be more towards the top ( due to tire height ) . I had to buy an ' odd-sized ' tire as mustang tires ( 245/45/17 ) were too small and other ' 60 ' series were too big for my liking.

I honestly think yanking the blocks, going to an xlt shock in back , type ' b ' or ' 2' bars and he would have a 1/2.5 drop with those nice wheels centered and he wouldn't loose ANY of his towing/hauling ability.

Damn, that looks badass. Maybe after my vacation and such this summer I'll get into that. It shouldn't be a long thing to do. I've got all the tools and air at work.
