you can flip the hangers for a 2" drop in the rear, and it costs about $10 to do

here was my 2001 with DJM 2" drop springs, and shackle flip

Welcome.

What front suspension do you have? Coils or Torsion bars?

If coils - DJM
If bars - Uncrank the preload bolt and get a 2008+ torsion key (which I have a set of) :)

the DJM 4/5 kit consists of DJm 2" drop springs, upper, and lower control arms, shorter sway bar end links, camber adjusters, and rear axle flip kit, and shocks

what i might do in the rear is get the chevy drop shackles to bring the *** up an inch, i have the shorter bump stops, but it still bottoms out
