Not good! I had that drop on my R/T for over a year and I couldn't wait to get it off of there. The back rode so stiff...I will say that the front won't be near as bad as the back if you get the right shocks. I am actually thinking about lowering it again, but definitely not with blocks. I would go with shackles.

Well i haven't used them i wen with 3" springs in the front and belltech rear hangers. I heard that western chassis wakes some good stuff. Yeah i hear ya on the hotchkis, the price is steep buy if ya want it to handle like a porsche thats what ya want.

i did a little searching today and the western uses a lower control arm and a coil spring to drop the front. hotchkis only uses a coil spring up front. western uses a shackle and ADJUSTABLE hanger kit for the rear. hocthkis uses just a rear leaf spring. prices for a western 3/5 drop $620, hotchkis for a 2/3 drop $439 but you really want the tvs $875. i dont know the western is more expensive for just the drop, but you going lower to the ground...decisions decisions.
