Let's see pics and the Specs of you lowered hoe. Please tell us what brand you used and how you like it.
I just joined this forum. I am looking forward to lowering my hoe but it seems as though its not very popular to lower these, seeing as how there has been two posts on the matter since 2012. If there is anyone out there my question is how low can I go with an 04 awd hoe without factory air ride? I have to be able to haul a car hauler with it, but I'm not opposed to helper bags.

To answer your question you could go with a 2/3 drop and be just fine and keep all your factory air ride any lower I believe you will have to remove the air ride for lowering shocks
Helper bags are always a good idea when towing and being lowered any amount
