Re: 3 inch drop rear

Although I don't have drop springs in the rear, bottoming out with 2 in the rear is fairly common from what I've read.

Re: 3 inch drop rear

I have Hotchkis 1.5 inch drop leafs and with the kids in the back hit a good sized dip on the freeway and bottomed. Also running Hotchkis shocks. I think the 3inch drop would look better, but would have more problems.
