    Shackles and hangers won't work, these trucks have coil spring rears unless you have an obs truck (5.7). Best way seems to be:
    Front
    2" Drop Spindles
    3/4ton Torsion Keys
    Doetsch Tech Shocks or anything quality
    Rear
    5" Coils
    Drop Shocks or Extensions
    Trim the frame and install lower profile bumpstop

    Use the SEARCH function, lowering these trucks has been discussed at great length.
