How Low Can I Go???

I was just curious if anyone knows of a quality lowering kit for a 4x4 superduty?

Thanks!

Re: How Low Can I Go???

IS the truck a bit scary now? I think a set of custom springs might be in order. Do you think ORU would know how to do this?

Yep...It's just too easy to get sideways. Not a good thing when you're sitting on 37's.

I'm not sure if going lower is where ORU excels. Though, if I had to get custom shackles made, they probably could do that.

I could probably get custom springs from Deaver.

I just need to make sure that the front pumpkin doesn't smack the cross member.

I was just thinking it would be nice if someone made a kit with all the necessary stuff.

I looked some time ago and did not find anything, but who knows? But with all that ORU can do, I am sure they could make something for you. I should call Mike tomorrow and see what he thinks.

Cool! That'd be pretty sweet if ORU thought they could make something work.

I fixed it for you. But as you know, they dont do any guess work there. How low do you want it? that way when I talk to Mike and see what he thinks.

I'm thinking 2" below stock ride height.

I think 2 inchs is very reasonable. I have a set of stock springs and see if Denver will put a negative ark in them. I live up by Matt.
