Dropping Rear to Level

I just picked up an '07 CC 4x4. Really like the way the truck looks for the most part. It has new 275/65/20s and I just feel like they look a little lost on the rear. I want the truck to look like a 4x4 but thought dropping it in the rear might solve the problem with out having to buy new tires. I definitely dont want it squatting down but rather dead level. Has anyone done this and possibly have pictures? Also, Recommendation on kits used would be great too. -Jim

yes you can drop the rear- but either way you level it whether its a front leveling kit or rear, it will squat with a load, so to combat that you need air bag kit.
