Got a V6?

Quick question…I am looking to lower my 2012 Silverado, which is a 2WD, regular cab, V6. I am most interested in your 4/6 drop, but am curious about the front dimensions. Other manufacturers claim that using the coil to lower is not affective with a V6 truck, that the front will sit higher than the rear. Since your kit uses controls arms to achieve the drop, will the stance be correct, even with a V6 engine?
