Default 3/6 Drop on 2wd F150

Just got my truck lowered with a 3/6 drop. Used McGaughy's flip kit with no lifting hangar to give it the 6" rear drop. In the front used their shock relocaters which drops it by lowering the coil spring to drop the whole strut but keeps the effectiveness of the coils.

Its not as bad as you think. I still drive it normally and all of course i have to slow down on big bumps but i have no rubbing whatsoever. And some scabs look pretty cool lowered better than keeping it stock!

What did a 3/6 cost out the door? Did they supply the kit, labor and alignment?

They charged me 896 exact. That price was with kit, installation and alignment. I would've done it myself but I can't find much time to install a whole kit since I daily drive it. The kit included shocks, flip kit, bump stops, and spring relocators. Pretty good deal if you ask me!
