suspension idea ?

do any of u guys think it would be possible to run the rcd 4.5" drop bracket kit and run something like 6" radflow coilovers with aftermarket UCA's to get a full 6" lift with only 4.5" drop brackets instead of 6"?

Run a 1.5" suspension lift, like 5100s, etc on top of your 4.5" db and wham, 6" lift.

Dont do it. Just get some coilovers instead.

If he does what I suggested above, the cv angles would be no worse than with. 1.5" lift, right?

You just have the 6" db right? So your angles are identical to stock.

OP why are you considering this instead of a 6" db? Getting a good deal on the 4.5" or you want more ground clearance?

They have a lot more angle to them than the RCD lift gives... But my angles probably compare to a 1-1.5" lift
