your fine without em. when you go over 1.5" thats when you'll need em more. im dropped more than 1.5" and i havent got cc plates yet. it just eats up ur tires a bit faster

the general rule is you can get by with about an 1 inch~ some more some less. Some need them stock honestly lol.

You NEVER know but the stock ones have ZERO adjustment so.... you can run CC plates or wobble caster bolts down by the shock/knuckle mount etc etc.

Re: Do i need cc plates?

ok thanks guys. Do any of you have a suggestion for springs to get that will drop 1 inch and still give a good ride that wont break the bank. Ive been out of work since 4-11-11 because i blew out my left knee at work and i have had 4 operations and my knee is all screwed up now. Now i have to have 3 more they tell me. AAAAAAAHHHHHH!

Latemodel resto has SVE springs for $100 sometimes cheaper when on sale. AM recently got some that about that price too and they offer a forum discount.
