Best way to 3/5 QC 4wd?

Just bought an 05 QC 4WD truck yesterday, now I can finally get on to taking my RC apart for the build! But the factory ride hight is awful to say the least. I would like to do a 3/5 drop to it. Anyone have a good way as to how to do it? I'm thinking about mcgauphys Drop spindles an cut the spring a little and then a flip and shackle in the rear then belltech street performance shocks. Thanks ahead of time.

If you do a flip might as well go 4/6 spindle spring up front flip rear shorter shocks x4 and aftermarket front bumps good as gold

Shouldn't but I also don't have a 4x4 so more research suggested.

Nah, if anything it will make them run more inline putting less stress on the cv joints It's designed to be fine up to the suspension stops.

2/4 is the lowest you can go with a 4wd before you start running into issues an $$$

You may be able to squeeze 3/5 but I'd just stick with a 2/4
