Default Sad lowering ordeal

I have bad back problems and cannot easily climb into my truck. I wish to lower the front end back to stock ( adjustable shocks). I also want to lower rear to level out ( Otto max coils) I have 276/65/20 tires. What do my friends on here have to say? Note that I do not wish to use steps on the truck.

I put the BellTech 2/4 drop on mine and still have to climb in! I'm a whopping 5'7" though

Those 275/65s will be too tall for the stock/lowered height I think

Lower it with a 2/4 kit. Me and my wife are short. She's 5'0 and I'm 5'9, but we both can climb in the truck without any steps

Bag it and just air out when you park and make getting in easier


in all readlity though my dad has the same problem and we went to a local cruise night and there was a 09 with a 3/5 and he LOVED getting into that truck. I cant imagine a 2/4 being much difference as far as getting in/out of it.


See if there is anyone around your area in the regional sction with a lowered truck and ask em if you could coom look at it and test it out (getting in/out) and go from there. You could always drop it and if that wasnt enough cut 1/2-1 coil off the dorp springs for anohter .5-1" of drop
