Need to lower new truck. HELP!!!!

Just picked-up a 2013 F350 Platinum 4x4 Short Bed, the result of having a drunk driver take-out the passenger side of my 2010 F250.

The new truck sits so high that my fifth wheel trailer is dangerously close to hitting the bed and the front of the trailer is excessively high.

What is the most cost effective way to bring the rear of the truck down 2" to 3"? It would also make the truck sit & look much better.

.....Replace the 3 1/2" blocks with 2" blocks?

.....Lowering shackles? (I can't find any for my truck on the Internet)

.....Run a set of 14" tires & wheels?

Any ideas/solutions would be appreciated!

I used lowering shackles for an '04 model to lower my '12. You may need the f250 blocks and shackles to get 3".

just remove the block all together..... and replace the u-bolts with 2wd ones

the difference in height is between the f250 block and taller f350 block,

removing it all together should level the truck out

also either way you lower it and you have a rear sway bar you are going to need shorter links
