Hmmm... definitely wouldn't consider taking the 4wd out. The only options I see would be to modify (I don't recommend modifying) or replace the front coil springs, and either rear lowering shackles or new springs for the back.

Well depending on who you ask, lowering a 4x4 is technically "ruining" it.

I would recommend trading it in and buying a 2WD truck . You're not gonna make a 4WD truck handle like you can a 2WD .
