Anyone ever lower the rear to match the front on 4X4?

Curious,

Anyone ever lower the rear of the truck to match the front on a 4X4?

If so, how?

Remove the block on the rear axle.

That's pretty much it. Take off the ubolts, lift the truck by the frame or leaf spring, pull the block and set it back down, put the ubolts back on.

Usually you'd raise the front with a Torsion Bar twist...

You could take the 1.5" blocks out......or.......prekey it(07 and older torsion keys) and leave the rear stock. It'll be pretty darn close to being level.

Yeah.....I've given up and the lower the rear idea.

Probably jsut going to crank the torsion bars up and get a alignment.

The post I jsut made in the sticky.....that silver truck. Whatever he did to get that stance, witht he center line wheels and tires....THAT's what I'd REALLY like to have!
