    Good day, all. New guy here. I've read through the forums before and thought it was time to join up.

    I have a stock black 07 Limited double cab and I'm finally in a position to start making some mods to it. I love this truck but I want to make it my own. The first thing I want to do is lower the back of the truck so it sits level. I don't haul a lot of really heavy stuff or tow at this point so that isn't a concern.

    Has anyone done this and if so, what kit did you use? I found this from S.O.S Performance but wanted to see if there are other options out there.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. I'm hoping for something a little less expensive and I only want to drop the rear to level it out.

    Sweet looking truck!

    Thanks for the complement.

    Where I live, most people lift their truck. The road condition here is atrocious. Lowered truck is not very functional. You guys must have better roads.

    Hmm your talking about lowering the rear ~1.5-2" to get level. Not sure how to achieve lower besides flipping the axle over the leaf springs which would put it too low for what you are wanting.
    Shorter shackles maybe but that would not be good for ride. Not sure if you can physically go smaller either.

    Just watched the video on SOS Performance. Looks like that is what you would have to do; change the axle over the leaf springs.

    Thanks, guys.

    @chphilo I don't want to lower it that much, not looking for the low-rider look :cool:

    @csuviper Yeah, I think that's my best route. I was hoping to get away with a little less expensive but it seems to be worth the money. Or maybe I'm just a cheap-ass :rolleyes:
