Well Welcome to the forum!

If you switch everything over you should not have a problem, I don't believe you'd need to switch steering linkages.

So are you looking for a 4/6 drop?

This is a picture of mine with a 2/4 drop with the hanger flip in rear.
Beauduke has this set up as well and so does dodgedrew.

Let us know if you need anything.

Together we can do a whole lot with these Mopars.

2001 slow drop.

I more or less followed his guide and asked questions to the members who have done this drop with or without the kit.

I've been rolling around like that for a year, and havent had any issues, just use locktight, and check your bolts every now and then.
