    they have drop kits, not sure if they have one that is that minor. Pulling a leaf will affect load capacity and handling. Maybe a different shackle?

    Things and stuff and such
    Install longer shacles on the leaf springs. I don't know where you could find any.

    None yet! It's new!
    Anything is possible if you have $$$. My question is, why? Your truck is meant to carry something. If it's perfectly level when it's empty, when it's doing its job, it's sagging in the back. It looks just like a real truck if it's a bit higher in the back... my $.02 of course. :)

    yea i know thats what people tell me. i got the truck when i still raced motocross but dont have any insurance anymore so i never really load anything up in it. and i was looking for that leveled (non stink) look without brining the front up 2 inches. also it rides pretty rough in the rear considering i never have stuff back there.. i guess ill just keep it stock
