sweet low as hell!! 1" in the front would even the front and back out...1" lower and you'd be tucking tire! Are you going to notch it, or is it already?

NICE!

I say leave it as is, raising 1" in the front and you risk going baja....
Would be perfect with some chromies.. or even a medium gunmetal/smoke/charcoal color wheel. or black rims but don't tell stoffer

Thanks for the comments guys! I would never go any lower than it's sitting right now. When I am driving on the highway and hit big dips she scrapes frame in the front.

I had to remove my ds safety loop. It was grinding the drive shaft. Caught it before anything happened.

I do not have a c-notch yet but we did cut away the little lip from the frame to allow the axle room. Big bumps it will slap frame... I will notch it when the money is available.

Chris(1sweetsvt) and myself did all the work last Sunday. It's a pretty big job to take on in one day. Not to mention their is always little hiccups that set you back lol.
