Lower rear only

I've tried searching and can only come up with lowering kits for front and back. I know there are ways to raise the front to help level, but is there anyway easy to drop the rear down 3/4"-1". I can't seem to find anything. Is there a spring spacer that can be removed that I don't know about? Thanks

Lower rear only

You would have the swap out the springs to get the rear end down. Some say that if you swap out load leveling shocks (if equipped) to standard rear shocks you will net about an inch of drop. Not sure if that theory has been proven by anyone.

I personally will be installing OEM SRT rear springs. They should give me about an inch of drop to help level out the stance.

Re: Lower rear only

I have non load leveling and non QL. I do know that the load leveling springs will drop it, but I also heard they are very bouncy without the shocks to match. Maybe I'll just have to cave in and level the front and add 275/55-20 tires.
