Lowering it down.

I know this may raise some objections and different opinions ,however I will ask anyways. My 96 cc barely fits inside my gararge with 7 ft tall garage doors. I was wondering if there is any way I can easily take a few inches out of my suspension to give myself the extra room when pulling in. I have 285/75/R16s and was considering going to a 235/75/R16 when I get new tires to help with the height and maybe mileage?? Any thoughts would be nice. Also to my knowledge its all stock suspension.

X2 on what Frank said with 4x4's. I doubt even a perch flip would leave enough room for proper suspension travel. You'd smack the frame. On a 4x2 though I've always wondered if the lowering kit from LMC would work on the diesel. Hmmm . . .

There's a CCLB 2wd lowered at my school. I'm not one for lowered trucks but wow does it looks good.
