The drop looks good. However I'm not about to drive to GA from NC to meet someone at a drag strip who never even returned with proof to that post from a while back. Post some videos, real pics, or your truck on a dyno and will work something out. Not being an *** just sayin.

Yeah, was a little shocked to see that the 2" kit now puts the front 1" higher...measured front & back before kit and back was 2" higher, which justified the 2" kit to be purchased...thought it would be leveled...but i think a 3" block in the back would level it out...

Anybody else have this same issue after installing 2" kit?

Nothing special (yet) and these are certianly no glamor shots. Only had her about 3 weeks now. Have plans for programmer, leveling kit, intake, and exhaust. I'd like a lift and to put in leather seats, but that will be a while... still trying to talk the wife into it

2004 FX4:



And, for kicks and grins the 93 CBR 600 F2. Cheap bike, and nearly bullet proof!

My 08 STX V6 in the red and my dad's 08 XLT in the white/beige. Got them in Jan. one day after my dad got his. The second is a comparision of how much higher my front is than my dads. Is it normal for STX's to be higher like that? Last one is my truck through nightvision goggles. Both are stock except my dad has seat covers. Both are 2wd also. Pics are from my phone so please excuse the quality.

Im assuming the difference in motor weight may effect the height. Not sure if the spring rates would be different to compensate for different motors either?

should be same springs and suspension, as stated difference is probably because of difference in engine weight
