I would estimate around 2.5-3.5 inches. I want to even the back out but don't want to hit on every bump! Also, would you recommend putting some sort of bump stop in there, right now i don' t have anything!
Read the tech tips archive about the bumpstops. I used a section of pvc pipe rubber clamps, similar to the hose clamps that come with aftermarket intakes, but thicker. Get them from Home Depot or Lowes. For the leaf, try it, but it will be close. You have short shocks right? They should help to keep from bottoming out with the new bump stops.
imma post some pics of my truck....i flipped my ball joints and put those dearched leaves in.... im not satisfied with what i got so imma put the 2" coils in and maybe some blocks...what i did for bump stops was cuz a piece of a slipper and a piece of metal then i cable tied them together and used that rubber coat shlt... ill psot some pics on those too
i already have 2" coils installed in my truck and i have the 3/4 djm kit(not installed yet).i just ordered and im waiting for the mini c-notch from AIM.i just wanted to know whats the best thing i should to the leafs to make my truck look leveled or at least an inch higher than the front? remove the middle leaf? flip the helper leaf? or both? thanks
Honestly, I'm not sure how much it lowered it. It was about 2-2 1/2 yrs ago. I lowered it several times, going lower each time. The rear end still rides great, even as low as it is. The front is stiff cause I cut lowered springs.
With only 4" blocks in the rear, you will be much lower in the front. To go lower, you can 1st remove the middle leaf, which you can do when you put the 4" blocks in. The middle leaf clamps around the main leaf that is bolted to the frame. Just use something to pry open those clamps and the leaf will come out once your ubolts are loose(loosen the ubolts 1st). Once you do this, your leafs should be arching upside down/ If you want even lower, you can take out the short leaf and flip it over. It naturally arches up. Hope you're not confused.
