Default Lowlife questions.

So now that I have my suspension working pretty good and it should be even better in a few days I have a question for you guys.

Other than the bumpstops what should I do because I am on the lower side? I am trimmed and the pinch seams are cut. I am going to be cutting off my shock mounts do to how well the ford shock towers worked. I really cant think of to much more? Well besides 2x6 rockers.

Fun fact detroits don't like tires that are worn extremely uneven. That is all!

Skids and beef up everything you have a chance of hitting due to belly height.

I dont know how much lift i have. but its not much in my opinion. Some mods that I liked was the rear quarter panel cut and fold. Greatly improves departure angles. My bumper extends under the folded part, even with the extra clearance I still hit those areas pretty hard, all the time.

Frame stiffeners are an awesome mod. other then there intended benefits, they are like sliders for your frame. Mine where a bitch to put on because the rails where already dented.

I'm debating doing a belly pan even if I loose roughly 1 inch of clearance compared to a flat belly I will still be ahead of factory and not worried about rubbing my aluminum t case.
