I'm a fan of McGaughys lowering kits for static drops. They keep all of the geometry correct. Depending on how much modification you want to make you could do a 2"-4" drop and get a little difference in handling or do a 4"-6" and really drop the center of gravity and improve the handling. As for shocks, I would go with a nice set of Bilsteins. They are a little more money but definitely worth it. When it comes to wheels and tires, when you go with a smaller sidewall you'll get less roll improving road feel, but it also gives a harsher ride. The question you really need to ask yourself is how much comfort do you really want to sacrifice? You can do 305/40-22s like on the SRT-10 and have good performance and great comfort. Or you could do 305/30-26s and have it feel like it is literally on rails but ride extremely rough and constantly worry about road rashing your rims. If it were my truck I would do the 4"-6" with 305/35-24s. Hope this helps...
