the 2/4 doesnt really slam the truck, there are a few kits 2/4, 2/3, or level the rear....or cut a small amount off coils if you just want an inch or something like that!

McGaughy's and Ground Force. I cut mine. If you want a 1/3 or something like that, it would be easy by cutting stockers.

BellTech, McGaughy's, and Ground Force are the only companies that I know making a full kit. The McG's kit at least gives you the option between spindles or springs for the front, the rest are all springs.

The spindle is located at a higher point on the hub assembly, which raises the wheel into the well more, thereby lowering the truck. It does not change the suspension or spring rate, so the ride stays exactly like stock. The downside to spindles is that they make your wheels stick out 1/2" or so more than stock on each side. Some don't mind this, but personally it's not for me as I like the flush look.
