props to the local drop shop !!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i decided to finally lower my truck after much consideration of what others have done ...... i decided on 2" drop spindles in the front & a 3" spring de-arch in the rear as well as level the truck side to side (off by 1/2")... took my truck into the recommended local drop shop but ran into a few problems...... the rear springs were out & over @ oregon spring when the drop shop found the wrong spindles had been sent & the right ones were back ordered..... what they did was install the de-arched rear springs/endlinks & put in 2" drop springs in the front FREE until the spindles arrived (could be 3 months).... all i've paid for was the parts & labor on the rear.... next the rear side to side was still off by 1/2", we set another day to bring it in... they again pulled the rear springs & re-arched slightly the drivers side spring & reinstalled.... it's perfectly level side to side & it was FREE again !!!

these guys are extremely courteous & bend over backwards to get you exactly what you want & fairly priced !!! i highly reccommend them for your lowering needs !!!

Looks good but why didn't you just go with a block? the SRT's come with a flip kit from the factory so all you need is a block and some new U bolts? there are some very nice kits out there?

I love the Yellow Fever and dropped it's amazing looking. How's the handling now? Nice job. It's good to hear about a good, reputable shop out there too.

thank's guys...... truck handle's awesome !!! still have another 1/2" drop in the front when the spindles arrive....

blocks are a cheap way to go, but de-arching was a better way to go for me & one spring is arched less to level the truck side to side....... personally, i think blocks can lead to wheel hop & vibration issues that other viper trucks are having.......
