What Chance said... Plus I think most that have moved the axle have also added airbags to bring it back up to level.A few have modified the leaf springs so they attach under the axle instead of on top. That's about a 4-inch drop if I recall correctly.
That may be too much of a drop for many. It also has to be done with care to ensure safety.
You should be able to do a search on this lowering topic.
Sounds a bit excessive (cost wise) to me!I want to re-arch my springs..
But there is only 1 place here in St Louis that'll do it, for 350$.
And they wont do any work on the vehicle. And i have found just 1 shop that will R/R the springs for me at 400$ labor. Dammmnn. 4 days of down time..dammmn
Ok Guys, seeing several different suggestions as how to lower the rear of my 118 inch 1500, first, do not want to " flip" Axel, don't need air bags, the only thing that's needed in my case, is a 1.5 inch drop in the height to level the van! I'm not concerned with losing weight capacity! I just need to know if anyone has has had the springs " RE Arched"? If so please give me any feed back? I can remove the springs in less than an hour, take them to whoever performs this, then re install! Appreciate any help? Thank you, Tommyhey guys, anybody lowered the rear height of the van! I do not like the looks of the rear jacked up? Want it level! How? Thanks for any feed back! tommy
