Flip kits are pretty cheap man.

You can flip your hangers for an inch or so of drop. Add like Belltech 6400 shackles for an additional 2" of drop or so.

flipping the hangers gives 2 inches of drop.

with the axle in stock form and no flipkit the belltech shackles will lift, not lower.

So you DID understand what I said. lol.

Flip the hangers, add shackles for additional drop, but also risk hitting the bed floor...so idk.

Even then, you've gotta buy shackles ($50-60), so you that much closer to the price of the flip kit, which isn't expensive at all...
