If you're trying to deciede between the two I would say go with a 3/4 drop. With the 3/4 there will be less fender gap so if you want a cleaner more flush look that's the one. You will have to notch your frame for though which i'm personally not a super fan of, but you'll have to notch it to go lower than a 2/3 regardless.

imo you won't notice much from the rear as you would the front. As of now I am dropped 1.25" front and 2.5" rear. Before I had only 1" up front but swapped and added in another set of washers to my spindle kit. I notice that it drives MUCH better although there is a little noticeable camber (for me anyhow), but doesn't really effect much (with others it could be different). Keep in mind that with either, you will need to make sure your drop blocks are pinion angled (with std. cabs you don't have to worry).

False information.

With 2nd gen 5-lug trucks, regarless of cab configuration, any drop over 3" will require offeset pins and/or holes in the block.

At least for standard cabs:
If not, your drive shaft will rub the dust cap. You also run the risk of the drive shaft jamming into the back of the transmission when you hit a good dip that loads the rear suspension.
