    static drop my DD

    Looking to drop my truck a couple more inches. I'm thinking monolift in back and heating front coils. Any ides I'm kinda low on money ATM though. I know all bout drop spindles and stuff but trying to keep as much in my pocket as possible.

    Dont heat the coil springs.....just cut a coil or two if u like. Then get some 3-4 inch blocks for the rear and take out the middle leaf. There's a good write up here on cutting coils.

    I second what crvtec90 says....heating the coils takes away the strength/temperment. And it make for a worse ride....i know this from experience....just get some shorter shocks and or relocate the ones you got if needed...

    You want to cut 1 coil off. Just use a sawzall. Avoid heat as much as possible.

    i would aim at 2 coils but do as camoit says....cut 1 then slap it all together and see what you think....1 is like very mild. 2'' i believe.

    cut the bump stops in half or you will be on them after you drop it.

    Looks like it sits nice and flat. And won't hit the concrete bumpers with the front.

    The last pic of the white truck is just about how a truck would sit with only drop coils in the front
