Well, mine is just lowered 2" in the rear to level it out. I have plans for 2" drop spindles and another 2" drop in the rear, so it will be a 2/4 when it's done.

Just began the process, I used lowering keys for the front and removed the rear lift block. I have 2" drop shackles for the rear and plan on picking up some 2" drop spindles. I figure with that set up the rear will be higher than the front (as it is now) so I can put some more tension on the keys to level it out, the way it is now there isn't much load on the torsion bars.

Hey Adam, didnt you have a leveling kit a while ago? Why did you decide to go from lifted to lowered? just curious. Looks good both ways tho, just my .02

Yeah, I had it raised up about 3", I decided to go back down and lower for a few reasons, I don't go off-road (been there done that in my youth, and almost always broke something!, can't do that with a daily driver!) I'm getting older( nowhere near "one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel" but "I like to be comfortable" older) so a lowered truck is so much easier to use, my wife is only 5' 1" and we have the Grand children a lot, lowered truck makes for easier access to car seats etc. I liked the way my truck looked and think it will look just as good lowered, but I did have a problem with the fact that I had street tires on a lifted truck, didn't quite add up, you know? All terrain tires are twice the price which is hard for me to justify, and eventually they start to ride rough, I enjoy modifying my truck so I decided to make it more streetable, I know some people won't "get it" because it's a 4x4 but that's OK, I don't mind.
