Good afternoon ladies and Gentlemen!!! So I purchased this mcgaughy 4/6 drop in hopes of lowering my 2008 ram 1500 2wd. Since there is no muscle I might as well make it look pretty ������. I open all the boxes and get 3 pieces of paper that says practically the same thing...nothing. So I go out on good faith and high hopes for the first attempt, and fail. Go out a few weeks later and fail again!!! I'm a big DIY guy and would hate to take it to shop and watch them make it look easy right in my face smh...any tips or suggestions on installation and what hang ups did you have while getting it installed

Thanks!!!

I can help you, but we will have to break it down into smaller chunks, a full detailed how-to would take pages to write.

What part are you trying to install first?

I installed my kit as well. More info is needed, like what your having problems with? Back, front? Did you notch it already?
