Lowering w/Shocks

Belltech 2/4 Drop Kit, The question is Street Performance or Nitro Drop Shocks?
not a big difference in price, so does that mean the street performance (more $) is better?

So i finally got around to installing my Belltech 2x4 Lowering Kit with Street Performance Shocks. And I love it. I have to tighten up a couple things but it rides great, low but not too low at all... Take a look

Ive got the Viper Truck 22s for summer but had already switched over for winter and it was too much work to dig them back out just for a picture

How tall are the tires on it and the 22's? The lowered appearance has a lot to do with wheel gap.

In that case your fender/wheel gap will remain the same as it is. I had to drop mine down some more when I went to 28" tires to get the gap right.
