    Default Leveling 2002 1500 2wd

    OK, I dont know much about leveling out a 2wd, but I already purchased Belltech 2in drop shackles for the rear. Is that all i need to drop the rear end to help to level out the truck? I dont want to lower the truck, just lower the rear end a little bit to help level it out. thanks for all your help!

    well if u want a 4wd look the drop shackles wouldn't be the way to go. I have an 04' 2wd that has 2" spacer on the coil springs in the front. I was able to run bfg 285's w/o scrubbing on it.

    The 2in Rear drop shackles will get you close to level.....you will have a small rake,with the front just a little bit lower than the rear.......

    I have Bell Tech's 2in drop shackles on my Ride and I very pleased with the Stance my truck has with the rear drop.

    X2 what '99Heartbeat said. The 2" drop shackles will get your truck close to level. Every truck is a little differant but yours should be close to level. The Belltech shackle is great quality as is all there products. We have Belltech 2/3 lowering on my wifes Trailblazer and it rides well even with 5 people, a black lab and luggage on the roof.
