I have heard using 5.4 front springs will get you close to another inch. I only did the shackles and hangers in back to make it level to the front, but now I want to go slightly lower in front to have some rake, so I might be trying this soon.

Hey Kenny!

I have seen guys cut a little off the springs but I really don't know if I would try it. They had a pretty nice shop and were pretty good fabricators.

Just a thought.

Gorgeous truck man! I agree, drop it another inch in the front and 1/2" rear and I think it would be perfect!
