I STRONGLY recommend the DJM 2/3 Drop kit. It was about $400 brand new, came with new front springs, new front and rear shocks, and the flip kit for the back.

Here is how mine looks after it all settled:

Did 3" drop in the front with shorter springs/put adjustable camber bushings in place of OEM bushings...........did hangar flip, but rear end looked too low/un-did hangar flip and removed thick-short-overload leaf to smooth out ride--also it lowered the rear endabout 1&1/2"/added rear adjustable air shocks to prevent ruining rear springs when carrying heavy loads.
