    Default I want to lower my 2011 Silverado 2500HD

    Can I lower my 2011 Silverado 2500HD LML without damaging my ride, steering or towing capacity? Any thoughts?

    Shackles in the rear, not sure if anyone has a spindle drop for the front though, that would be the best way to maintain present capacities.

    Hmmm Something I might be interested in... how much lower do you want to go? I would like mine leveled, & lower by about 4 inches. I'm going to watch this.

    I was thinking 5" lower in the front and level the rear.

    Then your probably gonna have to do a combination of spindle and springs up front and more work out back, the back will need to be lowered more like 7" to get level.
    And theres no way you'll be able to maintain the ride like it is now.
