Lowering a 2008 1500 - no kits???!!!
 
I have a 2008 1500 ST that I would like to lower in the rear by a couple of inches. I haven't found a rear drop kit for this model year. Any prospects or solutions out there?

2" drop shackles and overload spring removal should net a full 2" rear drop.

lower axle??
 
what about moving the axle to the top of the leaf springs? would that not give you 1.5-2" drop in rear?

It would give you that and then some. Probably closer to the 4" range after hardware.

mcgaughys makes a 2/4 kit or a 4/6 kit for the rams you have to use a flip kit on both, which is 6" but use a lifting shackle to give you a 4" drop if you don't wanna be so low, I Had the 4/6 on mines I Loved It
