    Last one. This pic was taken @ midnight in May. I thought it makes the pic more interesting.

    This one is next to an '03 with 55 series rear tires. I think it looks retarded. The truck sold in 3 days on this used car lot though.

    Hope this doesn't mess up the intent of the thread too much.

    I have the Ground force 1/3 Kit for harleys and lightnings (Front: coils, shocks. Rear: shackles, hangers, shocks) on now and its at 17" in the rear.

    What could I do to get 1"- 1.5" more drop in the back????

    I was thinking maybe:
    -Belltech or Roush leaf springs
    -JLP 4" shackles
    2003 Harley 2-Tone

    22 inch Verde Replicas, BF Goodrich G-Force rubber, 2/4 Drop, DG Motorsports Roll pan, Hidden Hitch, J&J Lower Grill, Lightning Tails, tonneau cover, Flowmaster exhaust, tinted front wondows, alarm w/ remote start

    This is really not the thread for these questions, but depending on how much drop you really have you may need to notch the frame first. Different leafs can help, and so can adjustable hangers, but we really need to know how much drop you have now.

    Wink Point of information/clarification!

    I'm thinking of the Hotchkis TVS, but, I also like the lowered look of sitting on top of the tires. Is there any way of achieving this with purchasing the Hotchkis TVS and getting their performance with a lower stance? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> SORRY!!!!!!!!

    hotchkis TVS...i tried to take the picture so that you could see how much room exists between the tire and wheel well...
    as you can see, if you have 22's it would prolly fill up the wheel well a bit more...

    Here's a new one...Belltech 2" Spindles with Belltech springs= 13.5"
    A full 4" lower than stock. Just did it a few minutes ago. It was easy-about 30 minutes per side with no power tools. Now I have to figure out something for tires because mine are touching just sitting there straight.

    Recap:
    Stock was 17.5" front/20" rear
    Shackles was 17.5"/ 18.25" rear
    Belltech "3/4" which is front springs with hangers/shackles in back 15.75" front/15.5" rear
    Belltech spindles/springs with Western flip kit 13.5" front/13.25" back --almost a 4/7 drop *requires new tires.
