Default Lowering tech question...

I have an '09 that I use for work. i carry a couple hundred pounds of stuff around with me everyday and the bed of the truck allready sits lower than the front. My question is which lowering kit would be best for me? a 2/4 or a 2/3.. im going to keep my stock 20's and i would like a little bit of rake as well (which i currently dont have). i will post pics btw, asap

looks to me like the front sits lower than the rear. Measure it! I'd suggest a 2/3 since its close to level already. I guess thats would be springs in the front and shackles in the rear? (not familiar w/ available parts for 09s)

i think it just appears that way because it is backed in the driveway (driveway slopes down)....thanks for the suggestion. appreciated!

That is definitely a sharp ride you have. I like the 2/4 myself.
