I gotta agree with Primenal here, the benefits of lowering are easily trounced by the disadvantages.
First of all, lowering throws off ALL of your alignment angles so don't be surprised if your ride is rough, tires are wearing super-fast, drifting to the sides, too hard/too soft steering, constantly scraping underbody parts, and the list goes on. Slamming a vehicle also prevents it from getting on top of an alignment rack so whatever little adjustments can be made to your ailing vehicle have now been made impossible.
Moderate lowering (1"-2" drops) will provide you with a better cost/benefit ratio, but I still wouldn't recommend it.
Yep, agreed. Not so bad to drop it a few inches or so, but people go to far. BUT even to drop it a few inches isn't worth the $ IMO. It maybe does make your handling slightly better, but trucks are still easily rolled. Don't understand why people race with trucks when they can just get a car. Easier on gas, faster (in most cases), don't roll as easily, etc.
I dunno...I'm just not a big fan of trucks anyways. My view is if I were to ever get a truck it'd just be to go screw around (muddin'). The big thing around here is to buy a decent-big truck, and raise it, but I live in a pretty redneckish state. Some look alright though.
He should get his truck a thicker front/rear sway bar with some urethane bushings instead, it'll help handling and it won't require a realignment.
