Drop suspension

I want to drop my truck another 2 - 3 inches but I already have a 2'4" lowering kit on it. What do I need? I know there are a couple different ways to go about doing it.

It helps to have some description of what you have. You can put it in your signature so it is automatically with each posting. Typically the max static drop I believe is a 4/7 and I suspect it's a tough ride for the street. Maybe time to go bags???

What more do you need other than it ' s a 2'4 drop with lowering kit? I don ' t want bags just another few inches.

Did you use springs or spindles on the front? Use the other one to get 2 more inches. Flip in the back can be lowered more by using the stock shackles but you will need a c-notch kit for the rear.

Belltech makes a 3" drop leaf for the rear. Would this combined with a 2" drop shackle net 5" of drop?

Typically people use the springs up front due to price cause spindles are $$$ for rear if you have stock shackles that will get you a 2" drop but like Neil said you will need a cnotch

If you have a 4" drop in the rear you should have a flip kit installed already. To get 2 more inches in the rear install a c-notch and the stock shackles. Add the 2" drop spindles in the front. Not cheap, the cost of the spindles and the c-notch is probably more than the economy 2-4 kit.
