You have to use the stock washer that goes on the rear struck, otherwise your shock will no rest against anything. Hence, you'll be on springs only. I left the rubber stops on and got a hell of drop. We had to raise the lift and put blocks under the tires to get the lift arms up. Here it goes.

Stock wheels 17s with 225/45

Before coils.... Note the lift is not picking up on it.











Here's after install. Wheels coming soon.

I was planning to go at least 1/2 and inch lower. I've been lagging on this since the current settings don't bother me as much -- but I will get to it in time. I'm lowered to about 0 finger gap.
