    Welcome to TW!

    Which lift do you have? Spacer? Adjustable?

    Can you take a picture of the front top of the shock, and the rear springs where it connects to the axel, and post it up?

    Looks like you've got a spacer in the front and a block lift in the rear, You could drop the rear by taking out the block, for the front the easiest / cheapest way to get a little bit of lift is to buy the bilstein 5100 front shocks that allow you to adjust you lift ammount.

    wat?
    the quickest/easiest way to give the prerunner look is to remove that rear block. simply adding the 5100's to the front end will DROP the front to a max of 2.5" and thats not what you are asking for. take the block out the rear and it'll drop the ass that much. if u do that, u may also want to look for stock/shorter u-bolts b/c those things will be dragging the ground as long as they are now

    wat?
    u can run the spacers w/ the 5100's, but the 5100's have to be set to 0" lift and u'll be getting the exact same lift from the spacers, but a nicer ride on the 5100's.

    Ok...If you remove the block, your gonna need shorter U bolts as there is not enough thread to secure the axel with the blocks removed and those U bolts. Also, 3" lift is about Max you can go with a stock front end. If you want to go higher, your gonna need lift spindles (which start at 3.5" lift) or a drop bracket lift (which starts at 4" lift).
