Lowering rear on a 2014 Std Cab

What springs have you people used to lower a Std Cab 2WD truck? I'd like to lower 2" to level the truck out. I can only find one company that makes a specific set of springs for a Std Cab, everyone else is pawning off the same set of springs for everything and according to reviews that doesn't work to well.

You need the Ground Force 2" kit. The McGaughys 2" springs will only give you 1" of rear drop on a regular cab,

Good to know I don't like mixing shock brands. I like KYB shocks.

I found last night I put a tape measure on my 2014 with the 20" tires, there is only 1" difference between the front and rear.

simple fix

I got a 13 ram sport sc, and all I did to lower the rear was bought a kit from Pep Boys with 8 u- bolts an 4 brackets. Tightened down in less than a hour.The back is about half-inch higher than the front now.It rides the same, only cost me about 15 bucks.
