If you removed them you'll be sitting on the down stops with no suspention up front.

I've heard of people taking the bolts out... that drops it like half an inch I think? I don't know, someone smart will confirm/deny this.

I have no bolts in and it lowered my front end 3+ inches. It will make your tires wear like crap however due to the extreme camber angles. The right way is to get the DJM lower control arms. That is on my long list of thing to do.

Yes. It will be the same. There is not enough adjustment to get them in spec. I had my truck at 3 different shops that specialize in alignments and none of them could get it right. The LCAs are the only way to do it correctly and keep OEM geometry.
