lower my 89 250
 
Want to keep stock spring and travel in front, only 2" lower.
Want to keep rear travel and capacity as close to stock only 2" lower.
I am thinking lowered spindles for the front. Are these available for a 250?
The truck will be expected to work, and has the Cummings, so I think heavy duty is in order.
I'm not sure what is best for the rear. I really like the way the truck rides
but needs to be lower and still carry full payload. I pull a bobcat and trailer
through the hills. The truck will be required to work.
All help is appreciated.

Not sure about spindles for the front, but any competent suspension shop should be able to set you up with a lower, stronger set of leafs for the rear. You could always add some airbags in the rear to maintain load carrying ability.

Air bags are the eaiser but there spring shop that could build a set. there use to be a couple of trucks where the springs were mounted on top flipped them on to the bottom which gave better than 2".
