Considering lowering my 2007 Quad Cab 1500, rwd.

Does anyone on this forum have the 2/5" MaxTrac Drop Kit on their quad cab 1500, 2wd truck? If so, do you like it? Are the MaxTrac kits quality real good, keeping everything working properly with the trucks suspension? I like the raked look, so would 3" drop up front be better than the 2" drop? Thanks in advance.

I think your truck would look amazing with a 3/5 drop.

2/4 would be great for a street truck that still has some suspension travel and can be used as a truck. You might need to make ground clearance adjustments to Keith's traction bars.

A Maxtrac kit did not pop up when I did a search. From a little reading they are somewhat new to lowering having their roots being in lifted trucks. When I lowered mine originally I went with Mcgauger bits and pieces. I recommend their 2" drop spindles. These make front end alignment much easier. A little trimming the spring and you can dial it in to be whatever you want. Rear flip kit is a given, being cheap and easy to install. 3/5 is the look you'll want. And the issue will be you need a "c" notch the frame to get travel back for a stock ride. You might be able to convince yourself you don't need the 5" rear drop and not do the c notch but it won't be long afterwards you'll wish you had and been done with it. For shocks I recommend Viking adjustable ... and to finish it off pm me and I'll dig out the Timbren numbers for their bumps. Good luck...

Bars are the same as my set on my truck now clears fine. 4/6 can be used like stock for towing and what not suggest a set of helper shocks to keep the back from bouncing a little. 2/4 will set it down nice for a daily though.

I don't want to lose all of my towing ability, but I don't tow very often, I just want to make my truck more accessible for my wife. The 2/4 drop might be the better route to go.

So the long bars will not need to be modified other than loosened up and repositioned? I installed Bilsteins all around last year so I don't want to have to replace them so soon. I think I will go with the 2/4 drop on my truck for now.
