Default Gen 4/4WD lowered ?????

What kit are you using? I have already lowered the rear and that made it almost level, now I want to lower the front by 2 inches for a slight rake.
09 Reg. Cab short box.
Thanks

I just ordered the front springs from GF as I already had a 2WD kit from McGaughy's and they're the same for the rear.

If yours is a 4wd then it's higher than the R/T which is only 2wd. Different front suspension and taller rear springs.

I recently put RT spindles which drop the front 2" compared to my express and a rear ground force 3" drop kit. Problem is now the front is 3/4" taller than the rear. For me to get the look I want I need another 1 1/5 to 1 3/4" drop in the front. So I am now wondering whether or not I can just swap out RT front springs or do I have to swap the entire coilover? Is there any other difference between a 2wd RT and my 4wd express front end?
