I'm in the same boat and would like to know as well.
Would I(we) need to do a drop pitman arm?

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

hanger lifts..not just the shackles is what you need you can go from 2-6" between the hanger kits and adding X codes to get to 6".
2-3" will need a adj track bar over that a drop bracket and Pitman arm..plus shocks etc.

We have everything needed.
