The economy 2/4 kit lowers the front by 2 inches with coils, you can get a rear drop of 4 inches with shackles and hangers.

To go down 3 inches in the front, use spindles, and again to get 4 inches in the rear, shackles and hangers.

To drop 4 inches in the front, spindles and coils can be used while a flip kit will give you a 6 inch rear drop.

  • The Square Body GM Lowering kit spindles give a 3 inch drop instead of the standard 2 inch drop
  • The rear shackles on the Square Body GMs only lowers 1 inch
  • 1973 to 1980 truck generally came with 1.25 inch thick rotors and the later 1981 to 1987 models came with lighter 1 inch thick rotors but we have seen the odd occasion where this rule does not apply. Please measure your rotor thickness.
