when you order the shocks make sure you order shocks for 0-2" drop since your using a 1' coil..dont trick yourself on buyin shocks for a 3-5 drop..yes you are lowering your truck 3" up front but your only shortening the coil 1"..i made this mistake lol..belltech nittro 2s are the best shocks btw
yeah notches are easy to make yourself, I have one made from 1/4" thick pipe. Do you marks on your frame where the axle hits it? If not you might have the 0"-3" shocks and you're bottoming out on those.. I thought they were suppose to cover 3" leafs but maybe not?
i know my shocks are for a 6 inch drop. I ofter wondered that myself. If i make the notches myself would i need the plates that bolt onto the side of the frame rail? I'm thinking i might. i wish i could get plans so i know how exactly to make them. We got a metal fab shop close to our shop so getting material will be no problem. anyone have a blue print of a bolt in notch?
