Default how to lower 2007 4x4 mega cab?

I just bought my first dodge truck. it's a 2007 ram 1500 mega cab 4x4. It is to tall to fit in the garage. Is there a easy way to take lower it 1" or 2" so it will fit In the garage.

Easiest thing to do is get a drop shackle for the rear leaf springs and that will bring the back end down. That might get you low enough to get in. After that you would either need to trim the front springs or remove the overload leaf. The problem with the mega cab is it's based on the 2500 chassis so none of the standard lowering stuff from the 1500 will work on it. There are HD lowering parts out there, but they are very uncommon.

thanks for the reply. you are right on the mark. there are lots of products to go "up" but it is much harder to go "down". Sounds crazy but if I let the air out of the tires I can get it under the door. I am off by 1 inch.
