Reverse level how much to go?

How much are you all dropping the rear? Do you wish you went more?

I ordered rear custom coils with a 1 3/4 drop yesterday. I dont tow heavy just want tha rear down lower. Plan to do 35s in the future.
I know leveling kits are 2,2.5,3 but since i am going the other way coming down on the tire.
Almost all of the trucks i see are 2012 and before and know ours sit higher.

Is your truck a 2014+ 2500 4x4 CCSB?
Where did you order the coils from and how much were they?

Interested to hear your height measurements before and after, and also comments on ride quality after they are installed.

Coil Spring Specialties.
The company is coil spring specialty. They will build you any spring height,stiffness ect you want. 4-6 week build time. They were 320 + shipping. I was hoping some 3500 guys would chime in i dont have anything to go off of so i hope i didnt do to much. They are in Kansas. I gave them my spring part # and they look up all your spring rates.

They are more expensive over $4??. And why go that route when i can pick how much i want. I found out at my dealership with a part number i had from this site that all these springs can go to 2wd and 4x4 trucks. The parts guys had very little information they could tell me about it and cant be sure it would do anything at all. Most trucks sold in my area are 4x4 so i didn't look much at the lot.

But i will take before and after measurements. This way you can go more or less if so desire.
