You can get lowering shackles for the rear.......Lots of different manufacturers out there. Im not possitive but 21/2 inch is the lowest you can go in shackles only.

well its a stock front end and i put 22's on it so you think 2.5 in the rear will make it look better? what else can i do to lower the rear? i see stuff about lowering blocks and axle flips but i dont want to be that serious
