most trucks have a few spacers factory installed about the rear axle, below the leaf springs. take those out ( you may need to get shorter bolts and u bolts but that would be the best way to lose the height with out the weight capacity. ( the spacers are about 4-5 inches long and the width of the leafs)

there are no leafs on the rear of the 4th gen 1500's. I installed 2" lowering springs from tuff truck and it dead levelled the rear with the front. They work very well, ride is the same if not better and you gain 10% load capacity due to the progressive rate coils.
I believe that Ground Force makes them as well.

A few companies make rear leveling kits. They consist of new coil springs for the rear, some have shocks too. otto-max is one of the companies. ground force is another. I think there are a few others, too.

I cut some RT rear springs and put them on my quad cab and it dropped the rear 1". Stock shocks, I am happy. Others have cut their stock springs as well with varied results.
