New here, Lowering kit help.

Hello, i had a question on yalls opinion on the best lowering kit to get im wanting to do a small drop about 4inches in the back and 2 front to even it out. I was looking online for some kits and found some for 300-500. I just wanted to see other peoples point of views and what they think is good.

I have a 2014 dodge ram and its regular cab.

Welcome to the forum. I'm a fan of dropped trucks. To maintain front end geometry use drop spindles for the front. The draw back with drop spindles is to run 17" rims you'll need to cut the excess bolt off the lower ball joint for clearance. The rear is simple. Just use a flip kit. This is the usually first step in dropping our trucks.

I have a 2013 ram regular cab lowered 2/4. I used the bell tech performance kit which is just shocks and springs. It give the truck a great look but a whole different ride than factory. This is my first lowered truck and it took me a little to get use to it but it's all good now. Well worth it in my books!
