use a 2" drop shackle, they are -$100, easy installation, dont effect payload and will level you out.

^ what he said haha

I put 2" drop shackles on my old 95 f150, they are really easy to do as long as you have a jack and know how to use a wrench (dont forget, lefty loosey righty tighty haha)

as long has you have those things you should be good.

A set of drop srings in the rear and you're done stock shocks will be fine.

Ok -
Where to buy these at?
I had a shop install the Eiback lowering kit on my 04 Ram and it came back higher...LOL!!
I measured 7 inches from the wheels to under the wheel well in the center. When I picked it up, it was at 7.5in LOL!!! So I'm trying to work woth them to get something else that will work. Cause I need it to come down 3.5 inches now.
