    I'm not real familiar with the 2WD kits but it looks comparable to some of the ones I've seen, there's really not much to them, just a spacer so I would think you can't go wrong which ever one you decide on, maybe some of the 2WD guys will chime in!

    i think my dad ordered his from autozone i dont remember theyre only like 50 buks and it will even out your truck from the back.

    Its also an easy install, ill guide you through the installation if you need too, even though theres instructions lol.

    thats all you need. If you have anymore question feel free to reply or pm me.

    Finallly found a forum that has some useful information! I have been looking into lowering the rear of my 2wd as well. Thats the kit that I have been looking at. Will I need to replace my bump stops when I put in the shackles? Dont want the threadjack but it may be useful information for the original poster as well.

    that will even out your truck. trust me

    or do you wanna lift it from the front?

    Also moshbmx, you wont have to replace the bump stops, your still to high to be anywhere near your frame. You wont bottom out.
