I dont know if its like me, but seems like the drop hitch actually has to be a couple of inches more than the lift. I bought a 10" drop to go with my 10" lift, but the trailer still sits a bit high, a 12" would be better on mine, but I dont feel like dropping another 100 bucks on one. so I would guess go with a 6", Someone who knows better may chime in here.

You could take a tape measure and measure from the ground to the trailer tongue (with the trailer level) and then from the ground to your reciever and subtract the difference. This will give you what drop you will need.
