Damn these trucks look fantastic lowered! Im curious if anyone has done any additional spring cutting to get thier stance? Some of the trucks look a bit lower than others, so I was wondering if anyone within this thread did some cutting to get a little more drop?

Im aware of the limits, I was just wondering if anyone has down some cutting to get an additional 1/2" to 1"? I know its possible, Im just wanting to know if anyone here that posted pics has done this since some trucks look a little lower than others even though almost all of the kits have been 2/4 drops...

You're also seeing differences in wheel/tire size making fender gaps look bigger of smaller. I'm sure some shots are right after install and others after the springs have settled. Also Belltech 2/4 kits seem to give more of a drop than both of the 2/4 McGaughy's kits. This accounts for some of the differences you're seeing.
