Default Help. Custom made rear lowering shackels

Hey I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 SS/T that is stock other than exhaust. I want to lower the rear 2-3 inchs, I can fab the shackels myself but I was wondering if any one has done it and has some advice. I dont know what thickness metal I should use and I havent really thought about how to design it Im in engineering in highschool and I have a internship at Cummins and have computer modalling programs i use to design so I can design it fast if any one knows the width of the leaf spring and the mount on the frame and possibly the length of the stock shackels with the exact hole locations and stock length. If not i will just have to take one off sometime when i have time. Thanks!
