Default Lowering a 2010?

Just picked up a 2010 Supercab 2wd and trying to find a 2/4 lowering kit and having trouble finding anything for the 2010 model. How much of a drop would i get if i just removed a leaf in the rear?

For some reason I'm thinking the 09-10's have a block you can remove. I wanna say I've read that you can remove the block in the rear and lower it a little.

I believe GroundForce is making a kit for 09's and up. I know McGaughy's has one.

Good luck on whichever you decide on.

ground force did one for sema in 08 on the new 09s but I called and said they didn't have any. But their site lists it. She made it sound like they didn't even make it. Odd.

The ground force kit was a little more than i was wanting to spend, and i've never been a fan of ground force's products. I'm leaning towards the Mcgaughy's kit since i uses all the stock suspension hardware but it just relocates it.

ive had many customers trucks with the 3/5 where the 3 inch drop struts in front it didnt align to factory specs. I sell that kit a lot and its a hit or miss on the 3 inch front drop. Usually in front djm for 2.5 or 3.5 inch drop works great and you don;t have to worry about alignment issues.

Thumbs up Mcgaughy's kit

I will be installing the Mcgaughy's 2/4 kit tomorrow afternoon hopefully. I can get these kits for the 09 and up for $450 if anyone is interested. Should have pics tomorrow as well. Also can get Mcgauphy's for other Fords as well.
