lower back to make level?
Ive never lowered or had to level any of my rides but now i got this ram so i want level it out but not in front i want to drop the back to match. Does anyone know a kit or if i need a block how big? im guessing 2"

Hello coolerpooler; you can try taking a look at Belltechs 3"or 3.5" Drop Rear Leaf Springs for anywhere around 180.00 to 200.00 buckaroonies bud.

Or just buy a set of drop shackles for $80

If you want to be able to still haul stuff in the bed, go with shackles. Lowering springs will probably reduce your loadability significantly. You'll get about 1.5" out of most shackles.

1.5" of drop in the back would probably be about right. I think 3-3.5" would be way too much without dropping the front too.

the most of them that i've found is a 2" drop shacks

Hey coolerpooler; whatever you decide on, make sure you take some before and after picks and update us on your rear drop or leveling.

I will i plan doing before and afters on all my mods

I don't know if you can see it, but I have drop shackles (it used to sit a bit higher) in the back with pretty much stock 2wd height up front. It might look a little misleading because I don't have a 9.25 back there any more.
