na i agree with you, but ya know, in my experience, lifted trucks can drag as well as lowered in my book. All depends on the motor and work done to it. Iv seen a lifted cummins on 37" tires pull a 9.5 in the 1/4 mile. Thats not bad!

From what I've read and seen.....4800 coils and removing the rear block should lower you about 2" and put you level

One of the guys over at Spartan was running that setup. I think he had 4800 coils up front and just removed the block in the rear and it sat level. If I remember correctly he even said it rode like a Cadillac down the street after that too...
