    Has anyone ever used this part number lowering spring on their 2012 ram quad cab 4x4. I simply just want to lower the rear to match the front. Don't wanna slam the truck to the ground just simply want it leveled without suffering ride quality. Any and all input welcomed. Thanks

    i used the mcgaughys kit to lower the front and rear of my 2011. had the spindles in the front , and 4" springs for the rear. its been 5 yrs and had no issues.
    probably different than the springs you want to use, but wanted to let you know that i did use the MCG kit.

    JoJo, I'm about to install that kit on my truck. What do I need to drill in the rear for the relocation bracket? I don't understand the directions .
