RSK Too Tall....Now What?

So, I just traded another member here for an awesome '97 regular cab. He had already done all the hard work of putting the RSK in, but It's a little too tall for my liking. Don't get me wrong, I want the truck higher in he front than stock, just not +3" like it is now. (SKY RSK) Not a superduty conversion, the stock springs were reused.

Here are a couple pictures.

I was thinking about re-drilling the mounting points for the spring eyes up front, and the shackles in the back (of the spring). To take it down an inch. Hopefully putting me around +2" from stock.

Any thoughts?

Looks to me like the rear is stock and front end is leveled. You can take out the 3" front shackle and go back to stock to lower the front. Not sure if you can lower the rear unless you go with a shorter block. Does the rear have superduty leaf packs? Put on shorter tires.
