Will installing a stock beetle beam lower your Thing? No adjusters welded in, no lower spindles. Just a stock beetle beam install..

Thanks guys, thing newb

Keep your Thing beam though - if it is in good shape it is worth a lot more than a beetle beam, and you may want to switch it back in the future.
