Lowered

My drop 3/5 :)


This is a discussion on My drop 3/5 :) within the Lowered forums, part of the 3rd Gen : 2002 - 2008 category!
I know I'll get asked why I no longer have the 20s. And that's because I traded wheels and tires ...

I know I'll get asked why I no longer have the 20s. And that's because I traded wheels and tires for the drop kit becaus I knew I'd get rid of those 20s anyways. Seemed like a good deal

Rear rides rough. I need to get some shock extenders.

Save yourself some irritation and just order the Belltech Street Performance Shocks made for the flip kit. They're valved a lot better for a lowered truck and are already shorter. I have them and the extenders on my truck lowered 8" in the rear and they made a huge difference.

Second that, don't waste your money, go ahead and get some sport shocks. Nice truck too.

There is just something about a lowered RCSB that always looks so good.
Your truck looks really good with the black rims, I bet you keep looking back at the truck every time you walk away.
