Now ask how that truck handles over road irregularities that require suspension travel... Especially at speed. A super smooth road course is the only place where that is not as big of a consideration.

A lowering kit would need to provide a MINIMUM of 3" bump and 4" of droop travel front and rear to work good in all conditions. Also, lowering the front also introduces the dreaded "Bump Steer". Dangerous if you push the truck.

Good Luck. Cheers!
