Alright so far, for lowering my 1992 F150 I've got a belltech rear flip kit and belltech I beams for the front. What is the flip kit good for in the back, 5 or 6 inch drop? I've seen people say both.... however I want a 4/6 drop, so if its only good for 5 in the back im going to need drop shackles. Now for the front is my question, how should I lower that other inch? Coil springs? Possibly lightning coil springs? I still want to be able to align my truck haha. Thanks
86, do you think the belltech drop spring will be too much of a drop, its supposed to be a 2 inch drop. Would the alignment be thrown off too bad with the 2 inch drop? Im trying to find someone who makes a 1 inch drop coil, but no luck yet. Or where could I buy new lightning springs?
lol people never browse the classifieds here. I have a set of 1" drop coil springs for 87-96 f150's for sale. Just need painted as they are raw metal. I can send you a pic via txt message. $70 shipped is what I am asking
I lowered mine 4.5/6 and had front coil springs custom made. Cost a pretty penny but I like the way it looks and I did not notch my frame just removed bump stops and put small ones on. This is front with stock tires, also no problems aligning it. I have stempf automotives adjustable camber bushing and its good up to 4*. Also I did have the belltech 2" drop springs and they made me have tire rub.
dont forget to browse the classifieds
In this stylin trucks catalog I have in my hands, it has a belltech 5/6 drop for 87-96s that uses a flip kit only. No drop shackles to get 6 inches. See what I mean about some places it says 5 inches, some places it says 6?
