I'm not sure if the same idea applies here, but here's an idea that you might be able to look into.

On the 99-04 trucks we put Excursion springs on the front and took the 2 or 3.5" factory block out of the rear. It sits level and about 1" lower in the front and 2 or 3.5" in lower in the rear.

With that being said, I'm sure you knew about taking the block out however you don't have springs up front. I would check into seeing if the excursion front coil overs are a softer spring rate or something... which would acheive the same thing.


G'luck.

Well even with the block out of the rear the rear still sits higher or about even with the front....so I will need hangers or something in the rear at a min...then maybe some gas truck coils in front...I am guessing the 2wd and 4wd coils are the same size? Not height but around.

There really isn't much room in the front to come down too far. I thought about doing this at one point too. Didn't have any luck finding a "kit". But it would be pretty cool!

2-3" in the front would be enough to give a good street look along with some 22-24" wheels...I cant and wont be "slammin" mine...I have had lowered...on the floor trucks before...I still need to be able to tow trailers and use 4wd if needed.

Just want a change of pace for a little bit I suppose..sorta bored with the lift and truck all together.

i felt the same way, i had mine lifted and was bored of it.

now its lowered with only 20s, roll pan, cowl hood, 05 front end, stack, going to be adding all black interior to it next. its fun to totally change the look of the truck,

who knows maybe i will go back up with it again but no time soon. i did save the lift just in case i got an itch

I had lowered trucks 10-15 years ago....and have had lifted trucks for the last 5-7 years....just want to change things....and maybe get some new track times with it back closer to the ground with less rolling stock on it.
