Cheep way of lowering my dually?

Id like a 4-5 inch drop front and rear.

In the rear I can just put the leafs on the bottom of the axle assembly and raise the bumpstops and shock mounts via welding.


But what about the front? What will I have to do to put it down?

I am assuming move the front shock mount, but what about the spring? Id rather not cut it, thats alittle to ghettoFAB for me.

How much drop in the front if you want 2" you can have a sprng manufacturer make a set of coils for you, If you want 3" buy lower I-beams get the belltech ones (part# BEL 4020), DJM suspension is cheaper but the belltechs are much stronger, and if you want 5" of drop ( the Maximum drop you can get on these trucks without extensive frame fab) combine the 3" and 2" method

If you tow alot of weight a flip kit will need to have airbag assist, you can get 4" from a hanger/shackle kit that belltech makes( part# BEL 6420) you can also remove a leaf or two on spring pack for about another 1"

The belltech beems do seem like the better setup.
