Re: lowered shortbeds on stock wheels?

front:
3" spindles
1 coil cut off stock springs
2" sectioned crossmember with 3 degrees of caster added
no limit rack and pinion (do not use bad bump-steer)
inner fenders raised

rear:
stock long leafs
flip kit
4" shackles/hangers
small c notch

I drive this truck every day and ride quality is pretty good.
