Great write up. I am definitely going to do this now. Couple questions though. Is this the same setup as a say 3/5? Also, how is your ride now? Is it close to stock?

As far as a 3/5 drop, if the components you use are the same parts, yes it should be. Most 3/5 kits I have seen are a combination of keys and spindles for the front.

as for as the ride, it is good on everything but the harshest roads.

Really nice write up! Be cool to see an add-on to this about removing the rear air shocks and how to properly dismantle the air ride system.

I haven't done it yet... I am talking with a guy from FOX shocks about a dropped Denali application.

If i blow one of my Air Shocks, it'll happen.

So, you did 3" springs in the BACK, right?

and then F/R Sway bars, RIGHT?

You WILL do the torsion keys.

and you added helper bags to the REAR springs, right?

If all this is correct,

Shock extenders are used to allow the shock to properly travel it's full range of motion, instead of driving around with the shocks compressed because of it being lowered.
