Default 3" DJM LCA and Poly kit for Belltech leafs.

Two bits of info I've yet to come across are, what is the correct Energy Suspension part numbers to do Poly bushings in the 3" Belltech leaves and what has been the experience using DJM 3" LCA's?
Reason? Trying to get as much drop while maintaining proper geometry. And rebuilding truck using poly.
Thanks in advance,
Mathias

I prefer drop spindles over drop control arms. They’re easier to install. If you already have drop spindles just keep in mind you’ll need 20’s to keep above the scrub line while using drop spindles and drop control arms together.

Default Ok...

I read an article after posting this that explained how the control arms throw the balljoint, tie rod ends and something else out of OE alignment. Seems like they could have easily made a 3" drop spindle.
Still haven't found the bushing part numbers for the belltech leaves, though. I'm not wanting the Belltech leafs to be stiffer/firmer than stock. Can anyone comment on their stiffness?

Yeah, they're only 30 years old... It's good. It's getting bagged in August. I've scratched the lowering leafs idea.
