flip shackles or drop shackles. theres a few with lowered trucks on here, maybe they have some better suggestions... Google suspension drop kits for an F250 and something will surely come up.

Is this an F250 or an F350?

OK. I've been meaning to ask this for a while. I'm creeping up into "old guy" territory age wise so I'm a little out of touch. What is the point of this? Is it considered cooler or better looking if these trucks sit level? Do the people who put leveling kits in not tow or load stuff in the truck very often. If my truck sat level empty it would spend most of it's time with it's headlights pointing at the trees. Back in the day we always liked the way a vehicle looked with a little rake.

It's just personal preference on how the truck looks.
