stylintrucks.com has a pretty good assortment of drop kits or even just different drop pieces (not a whole front and back kit)

and yes they do make shackles but on the dodge you can't get much of a drop with shackles, max is about 2 inches. for a bigger drop than that you will have to do a flip (about 6 or 7 inches on your truck) and then add lift shackles to get it back up to the height you want.

advice much appreciated the 2 inch max drop on the shackles is really all i was lookin for just to level. i did want anything to drastic not lift to level but much rather rear leveled to give it that slight edge to some one lookin at that would there is somethin he aint tellin us that makes this thing look good. i dunno yet though but thanks

If you're lookign to level the rear, then a set of shackles is the best way to go about it.
