2004 Dodge Ram SC 3/5 drop

Hi everyone. Does anyone have any 3" drop coils for an 04 ram and/or drop shackles? I have a beltech 2/4 now and I want to go lower. I cannot use a 4/6 because I don't think my tires will clear being that I have 22"s. Thanks!

That drop would work well using 2" drop spindle and a trimmed spring. Flip in the rear using the bottom hole of the shackle that comes with the kit. I'd do the rear first and then adjust the front for level. Timbren bump stop in the front to control travel so the tire doesn't rub the inner fender. How tall are your front tires?

22/40/305 are about 32 inches tall and would fit without issue with a standard offset. If you are scuffing the fender lip you can adjust the chamber a little for clearance.

I know I will rub a little lol. I don't drive that much anyways and if I do it won't be far so it would be manageable. Not too sure how I would go about cutting sorings or where to cut

Rubbing can be eliminated mostly using Timbren bumps and a chamber adjustment.

To go deeper than 4.5 in the rear you will need a c notch. A flip kit with the OEM shackle will give you close to 6 inches. That will get you setup in the rear, front 2" drop spindle and a trimmed spring.
