    Thumbs up ways to lower 2500hd

    Greetings,
    I recently purchased an 04 Silverado 2500HD. 2 wd. std. cab. long bed.
    This way more truck than I need to pull my 3500 lb. tractor around.
    I bought it from a deceased friend of the family at a great price.
    Is it possible to lower the rear and some?
    Not a low rider, but I'd like to lever her out without raising front to match.
    I notice a 2" or so spacer that mounts the leaf springs to axel.
    I was wondering if there was a smaller one available. I do not want to remove, cut, or screw with factory settings.
    Thanks, Mark

    I am going to start by removing the factory block to see how much it will lower the back and then I will try a lowering kit. Rear leaf shackles are available also to lower just the rear.
