Lowerin the front of a QC revisited

Off and on I consider lowering the front of my '05 QC. It currently has about a 2" drop of stinker's on the back. I'd like the drop the front about an inch. I have an old x metal 1-2 inch drop on my '05 RC.

My remembrance is that stinker has a 1.5" drop for the front but that stinker wasn't necessarily recommending it for me. I remember reading that if I put my old stock RC front end springs on it will drop my QC about an inch. I can't remember if anyone has tried it and I couldn't find anything on a quick search of the forum.

I have the idea that some folks have dropped the front of the QC but that there really isn't anything folks agree on that will drop the front and not compromise some of the roadability.

I also have a set of RC springs sitting in my garage. Been meaning to try them.

RC springs

100_2056.jpg




I run em on my 10 an the only ill effect I have not fixed after about 10K miles is the bump stops. I sit about 1/4" off of them and if I hit a hard ass bump it is basically bottoming out on the rubber snubber of the bump stop. I am going to shave the stop down and reweld it on the frame. Ride is really great as it is not a heated or coil cut spring. Rather a spring made for a truck 5-600 lbs lighter. Takes about an hour a side install from lifting/supporting truck to bolting the wheel back up and letting her down.
