Best way to go about lowering. Inches

Does anyone find it better to go with the leveling kit for the back to equal the height of the front? What would be a good drop from front to back?

I have 4 inch drop coils in the rear of my 2014 4x2 and stock up front, on my truck it looks a little nose high but it's actually even, not sure how that would translate to a 4x4 QC

The difference on most 4x2 appear to be around two inches. The front leveling kits, are usually two inches thick, and if you were to drop it with a lowering kit, either 2/4 or 3/5, the difference is always 2 inches. Being you’ 4x4, I’m not sure how that will work and wether the geometry of all the components will allow it to be lowered. I’m sure if it can be done, one of these manufacturers will sell it specified for your truck.

Good to have you here.

Think about just bringing the nose up.
