Sweet ride.

Guys as you can see I'm new and have a simple ST. I want to level the truck out by dropping the rear a little, should I go with 1" or 2" drop shackles? Also, I see removal of the "OL" spring may be required....... advice?

2" will bring the rear closer to level. Not sure if there are any true 2" shackles out there but i assume they all will come close.
Removing the overloads is optional but you can get up to an extra 1".
