Ideal Image in my Head!
I would like to get the opinions of the powerstroke.org community. My truck currently has a leveling kit on it. I bought it with this already installed. I have seen where guys have said when they leveled they lost gas mileage. My commute to work as a top speed of 50 to 55. So I can take it easy on my pedal and touch 22MPG's according to the scan gauge. With that being said, I was thinking of lower the truck. It is four wheel drive, and I am not talking an asphalt scraper. I was going to remove the leveling kit, and use lowering shackles to bring the rear down to either 1 or 2 inches. Not sure if I what just a bit of rake or level it lowered. I do not tow often, and when I do, it is not a fifth wheel, or over 5k. I was thinking of adding air bags to help with any heavier loads I may need to haul. I am getting out of the big lifted truck, not really into lowered trucks either, but if I can take it back to stock and then drop the rear an inch or two I think I might be where I would like the stance of my truck and maybe even but a mile back in the MPG's.
