Well I'm not as well versed on your condition as you may be but a little confidence goes a long way when it comes to struggles in life such as yours! You're right, things could be much worse. You could be driving a f*rd :lol:

If you decide to put the back up at 4, let us know. I'd like to see, I think it'd look better - in my opinion anyways.

Sorry to go into such a lengthy explanation about my health. F*rds are not in my future! I am retired from GM & worked in truck engineering validating design.

It may be a little higher in the front but not that much. Rob @ McGaughy's said the included instructions referred to minimum lowering in the rear as 4". BUT, that was for pre -2007 models. Newer models that same setting is 5". The shop said they could lower the front more if I wanted but I'm going to keep it where it is.

Thanks again to everyone! :D
