Springs installed and the rear looks way better. I have a 4.5" gap from tire to fender up front and 5 1/2 in the rear. About as level as it's going to get.
I shortened the stock bump stops slightly..
Will post some pics tomorrow.

I have the McGaughy's 2" drop springs.... still have the stock shocks. Smooth ride, no issues, no bottoming out, etc.

2014 CC........you can see here it's fairly level...

I've heard that lowering the rear causes the whole rear axle to move forward an inch. Is that a problem with these lowering springs?

This is the best pic I have of mine right now with the 2" drop coils. Sometimes it looks like the rear is lower but it's only for a quick glance.

I did a 2016 sport crew cab long box. 2" MCG rear springs, defiently looked sagged in the rear compared to the front. We added air lift bags, he runs 10psi and they sit perfect now.

No shocks needed for the 2" springs

Added the manual air lift bags with the little valve stem looking thing or air compressor air lift?

I have 2in drop springs on the rear of mine. Looks way better. Stock shocks and I cut the factory bump stops in half. No issues here.
