Lowering my lift
I just did a round trip to Austin and back to Houston, averaged 13 mpg on the highway babying it, running a half bottle of diesel kleen in both tanks. My chip was set to Eco the whole way never changed it. I know my truck isn't going to get anything outstanding, but i was hoping for something better than 13 mpg when not even towing anything. I've been thinking about lowering my lift for a while and this just about made up my mind.
I see my lift is set up on two blocks front and rear, a 4" block with a 2" block stacked on top. Also i believe i have 3 added leaf springs on my front axle, compared to how many i have on my rear axle. Although that may be how it comes, i'm sure you guys would know more than me. My question is, if i take out the 4 2" blocks i have out from under each set of leaf springs and drop my truck 2", will everything still preform properly? Will it sit lopsided or is there more i need to do? It can't really be that simple...right?
Right now my plan is pretty simple, take off my wheels, slip out the 2" blocks, put the wheels back in place...and that's about it. Any info or tips on how to do this will be greatly appreciated.
