I believe I'm sold on dropping the rear over raising the front. Is the Mcgaughys the cheapest and best way to go.

Don't know if but Mcgaughys is cheapest, but more options. Can do 1" or 2" drop.

I think Belltech is only 1".

I believe both are around $90.

I'm guessing any more than a two and a guy may need to do some rear shock adjustments? Anyone know? I went with McGaughys (sp), straight to the 2in. It's a little more rough, but only noticeable over a select few RR Crossings. Much cheaper than lifting/cranking.

Many years ago, had 1/2 ton with drop shackles, would bottom-out and a little rough.

My 2015, overloads removed and drop shackles set at 1" drop, rides great and no bottoming-out.

currently stock height, not my truck, one of my good friends. Ordered 2" shackle, removing overload and lowering the front to match soon. 24x8 Forces.

I'll ask again.
Did not get a reply when asked earlier.
How about some wheel and tire specs on the lowered trucks that have been shown so far.
What wheel and tire sizes, wheel offset, and do they rub?
any cutting on the truck to clear tires?

Wheels: Fuel Mavericks 20X10 -12 offset
Tires: Nitto 420s 305/50R20
Very minimal cutting, no rubbing at all but barely clears front bumper.
