I agree on the measurement v look at the dang thing. Mine looks level most of the time and sometimes a$$ low, which I hate. I had an 800 pound motor in the bed and it looked really a$$ low. Put a tape on it and it was perfectly level from ground to wheel well. One day it'll get 5" OUO blocks and bars to go with the 2.5" Carli front springs and to satisfy my taste.

Oh I'm sorry. Here you go.

I finally crawled under. Looking at the mounting bracket, it currently sits on the shelf that the factory bump stop limits at. The shelf has a very similar radius to the axle tube. I think I could set the bracket onto the axle tube. It might require a little grinding on the bracket. It looks like the distance to the tube is more than the height of the block. This would also allow me to use the Daystar cradles. Now I need to get some 4400 springs.

Nice. Mounting my airbags tomorrow evening/Friday morning. I'll make sure and post up the finished product.

I'd really like to do this soon. Anyone know if fox 2.0 ifp shocks will work? Or does anyone know the collapsed size so I can make measurements? Also, part number for the 4400 springs?

Has anyone experienced any front end sag after running the 4400s for a while or had any driveline/alignment issues? Went to a custom spring shop in town for work the other day and decided to ask their thoughts on doing it while I was there and those were a couple of the things that they thought would be an issue. Figured this would be a good place to get some answers from people that are running that setup

I got death wobble from having too much caster. Cams can fix that tho. After trimming the bump stops not much else to do.

I actually have LESS death wobble now that I lowered it on 4400lb springs with King shocks.

I used to get a bit of wobble on a turning freeway bridge with the expansion joints, it's 100% Gone.

Camber is set at 4.5 IIRC.


I haven't even aligned it since I lowered it. No driveline issues.


For sag, it's dead level with a rear block ******.

Jomax- can you measure the distance from the center of your wheel hub straight up to the wheel arch in the fender?

I'm 22.25" front and rear. Curious where the 4400# springs measure.
