Lowered to lifted...
Well I'm looking into lifting my truck at least to stock if not a few inches over but the fun is from starting with a truck that's got a 3/4 drop on it from previous owner. Also I'm not sure what front components were changed out other than springs and shocks. What do y'all think?2000 single cab short bed 1500 w/ 6.0 vortec maxx swap from a 2006 2500, custom intake, slotted brakes, shorty headers, 8mm wires, electric fan, strait piped, 4.5 inch lift, asp pulleys, true dual through body exhaust, built trans w/ shift kit, custom tune by efi alchemy...320rwhp

Steering knuckles (aka spindles), drop shackles for the rear leafs, probably a c-notch and maybe even an axle flip kit in addition to shorter coils and shocks.
http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/ce/t.aspx?Page=144 has the normal components that people use to do this as well as the parts to pick your truck back up to stock. IMO, I'd lift the truck back to stock, but leave the rear shackles to keep the truck level.
Is it a 3/4 or a 2/4 drop? Your thread and signature are giving conflicting data

If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

After being parked next to many other lowered trucks where recent drops have been put on, mine sits at the same height as one with a 3/4.2000 single cab short bed 1500 w/ 6.0 vortec maxx swap from a 2006 2500, custom intake, slotted brakes, shorty headers, 8mm wires, electric fan, strait piped, 4.5 inch lift, asp pulleys, true dual through body exhaust, built trans w/ shift kit, custom tune by efi alchemy...320rwhp
