How do I lower the rear another inch?

Some like the back end of a truck to have a bit of a rake to it, I on the other hand DON'T! How do I get the backend to lower another inch? The only thing done to the rear is 2" shackles. Would new hangers work? Thanks!

That's where I was stuck too. 2" wasn't enough, but an axle flip was too much. The options you have are to do a flip and add some height back with with load-adjusting shocks or airbags.

do they even make those for the 04+ guys with the 3" wide springs?

and they call them 2-3-4 but they are really 2", 2.5" and 3" drop settings

Is that an fx4?

If so remove the riser block in the back.

Great looking truck. I have the same color.
