Anyone use the rear leveling kit??????

To lower the rear instead of raising the front?
If so can you show pics please?

Ok doing some searching here ...and i guess the better question would be how exactly do i go about lowering just the rear for better performance?
Looking at adding the Hellwig bar and trying to get the best handling i can....

Depends if you have a 4G or 3G. New rams you can just trim coil but if its a 3G its not as simple

The front height is fine but i would like to level out the truck without raising the front.
Looking at lowering shackles but not sure which size to get?2"-3"?
And do i need to add spring clamps?

Stay away from clamps they suck make ride crap as for lowering back to match front would only go about an inch or you end up with the California lean to the rear I hate that look myself makes truck look realy goofy when towing dont know if anyone makes a 1" rear drop shackle but 2-3" yes but will lean back

I had a 2" drop shackle. Be lucky if I got 1.5" out of it.

You can remove the over load leafspring as long as you don't tow much or put a lot of weight in the bed. This with the shackles will be pretty much level
