DJM Suspension HS2603-5 Lowering Kit, 01-10 GM 2500/3500, 5 Drop
Polyurethane Bushing Material, Steel
If you want a little more drop than a shackle gives just add the leaf spring hanger to the mix and you have a traditional Hanger/Shackle kit. Your moving each end of the leaf spring up on the frame for a total of 5 inches. To avoid an especially bad installation situation, look at your factory leaf spring eye hangers and make sure they match the hanger picture below! All the 2500/3500 Short Bed HD’s we’ve seen use this part but to make sure you have the right parts, a quick inspection before you order can save you from finding out you don’t have the right parts when you need them most!
Note-This rear kit uses Calmax SuperShocks number 2200 & 2400. In case your wondering why 2 different shock part numbers in the rear? Your factory shock mounts are staggered, one in front and one behind the rear axle. Since you're going to the trouble to lower why not have the optimum length shock for each side!
