Alright, update time!

I put the shackles on yesterday. I ended up leaving the overload springs on because I was in a bit of a time crunch and didn't have time to mess with them. But I did put the McGaughy's 2" lowering shackles on.

Right after I did it it didn't drop much (hopefully this isn't when people are measuring) but after jumping up and down on my bumper and a 160 mile highway trip last night it has settled and is pretty much right at 2" of actual drop. :-) so I'm happy.

my rear fender measured at just over 38 1/4" and after it settled it was at 36 1/2"... so maybe an 1/8" or 1/16" inch difference but pretty close to 2"

Hopefully this helps. The truck looks much better now :-) I'll post some pictures soon.
