lowering an 06 super duty??

i own an 06 superduty with an 8 in lift that was on the truck when i bought it and i was wondering what it would take to get it to a 4in lift or possibly as low as i can go and still fit 35s with 20 rims and with my current lift the *** is lower then the front and it drives me crazy how can i lower this pig ?

You can fit 35x12.5x20 at the stock ride height. That's about as big as you can go with the stock suspension.

As far as lowering, that depends, what type of lift you currently have on it. Is it a full on suspension lift, blocks, add a leafs, etc?

If it's got a full on suspension lift in it then there's not much of a choice regarding the front other than full on replacement, the back can be handled by swapping in shorter blocks.

You could trade me for my stock suspension and my leveling kit. Haha

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.
