96 OBS LOWERING KITS? ANY BODY DONE THEM?

Hey guys!

New to the site! Pumped about my OBS! I got a 96 PSD with the usual mods, guages, 3"dp, 4" exhaust, cai, ts chip. Its a ex cab long bed that doesn't do much towning anymore. 2wd. I am thinking of lowering the truck a lil. Maybe a 2-4 drop? And put some 18" - 20"s on it? Not sure? Has anybody done this and what lowering kit they use? Does anybody have any pics? Anyways, Thanks in advance for the advice!

I've done a 5/7 on a 94 F-150 then cut the a coil out of the springs. Truck was LOW.... would drag the frame over speed bumps I used chassis tech equipment. The hardest part was removing the stud that runs through the i-beam and radius arm and captures the spring.

Cummins- coulda had a V8!!!
