4x4 dually lowering?

im looking to lower the front end by 1-2" then make the rear level with the front and putting bags back there for hauling .
what is the best way to do this? ive seen tonnes of lifting kits available but no lowering kits after lots of searching the internets.

Your best bet for the front would be to either cut 1 full coil off your front springs, or go with a gasser spring. I've heard the gasser springs will give 1-1.5" drop up front, out back things should be much easier, just experiment with the factory blocks back there. Being that your is already a F350, to level with your future dropped front, you'd prob need pull the 4" or 5" block, that should get you close to level.

A 250 rear block would help. And the front. Maybe check out Topgun Customz. Get a set of springs made maybe. I wouldn't ever cut a coil down to size tho

Theres no kits....pull the rear block all the way out.....cut about 1 to 1.5 COILS off the front and roll out...it will be as low as you can get...will look about like my F250 did...
I know its not a 6.7 but its the same suspension

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.
