Yes unfortunately it's a lot easier to just cut it flush with the frame. It's a lot harder then it looks to cut the piece you're removing without getting into the frame then smoothing out the frame. A lot of work but worth every bit of it.

that's what i figured. i'll need to do this with the 5" drop i'm planning on. not really looking forward to cutting it out but i'm told i should.

No worries. Looks like I'll have a c-notch writeup coming soon for the guys wanting 6"+ of drop out back.

I've got a 2/3 drop on my yukon but I think it gave me closer to a 4in drop in the rear and I bottom out. I never put on the shock extenders or the spacers that come with tonys springs. If I was to install the shock extenders and those 1in spacers on the rear coils would that help any? I would love to do the free travel mod but just don't have the tools and probably skill needed to do it.

Do the shock extensions and spacers, should ride better. I'd honestly do the free travel mod on ANY lowered nbs yukon/tahoe.
