I'm wanting to drop my truck after I get it painted. It sits level stock, so I really don't want to go with a 3/4 drop. I've got 17" stock rims w/28" diameter tires. There's 7 1/2" gap between the wheels and the well. Do you think a 4/4 would be good w/o having to mod it from rubbing? And where can I buy a 4" drop for the front. I can't find seem to find any from Belltech or Hotchkis. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Here's a side pic if this helps:

you dont wanna do it this way

well if you have to i have a 98 dakota sport. i put 20s on it and i droped it 4 inches in the rear and coudnt find anything in the front, so what i did was i went to a suspention shop, and had them cut a coil outta the front. when u drop the back 4 inches you might wanna consider takin the bump stops out or gettin shorter ones. bumpy as hell and stif. you wont like it with bumpstops. the front is stiff too. but thats what i did and i regret doin it but thats what i chose. did u go with blocks or hangers? i went with blocks.

here take a look

i'm wanting hangers, i don't like the idea of blocks. my buddy dropped his to where the axel is sitting on the frame...same thing as putting in a traction bar...he hooks up real nice. getting 2" spindles and 2" coils would give me my 4" drop, right?
