I need of a 3" rear drop kit.

Can Anyone help me out on this? I have been looking to get a 3"rear drop kit for my 2005 F-250 reg cab 2wd but all I can seem to find prices on is the 3"front/5"rear drop kit. I know DJM suspension makes one but my question is there any vendors on here that could give me a price on a 3" rear drop kit with the necessary shocks? any help would be greatly appreciated.

2005 F-250 2wd converted to 4wd.

Re: I need of a 3" rear drop kit.

That's an odd number. Drop shackles will get you right at 2" then you can pull a leaf for another inch. If you do the front spring hangers only that might get you 3" but you're gonna need some shims to get your pinion angle back close.
Yiou don't need shorter shocks either it it's an SRW truck. Just unbolt the shock mount on the axle and roll it down. While you're at it move them as far out the axle as you can...moving the shock outward gives it much more control of the unsprung weight.
FWIW I run a 6" rear drop with a stock length shock and it doesn't bottom out.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

Great info, Thank you. I just got done looking at a 2-4" kit from suspension max, and from what I can see this might be the kit for me. And I might be mistaken but I believe they have a pic of your truck, I may be wrong though

UNBROKEN...are you still running your stock shocks or did you get aftermarket shocks just stock length?
