    Depending on how many miles you have on the shocks. If u have like 30k on the shocks they could go out. Don't go back to stock. If u wanna go lower I would go 3 in.

    I'd be giving Pro-Comp a call on Monday. Did you buy the lift new? How many miles are on it total? Pictures would help a lot. Is your sway bar still attached? (Don't know if that last question applies, I'm not a suspension expert)

    Take pictures. You dont really seem to know the lift well which is okay. But we can help you if we can see whats installed or not.

    So.....4x4?

    And personally I would just ditch that lift. Buy some used shocks and take the blocks off the back. (I'm assuming its blocks...)
