Default Lower back to level the truck

Hey guys. I, going to pick up my 2014 Lariat and was wondering if anybody knows the easiest way to lower the back of the truck. Don't care for the back being higher and don't have any intentions on buyin bigger tires. All suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance.

I think it would be easiest to get a leveling kit. Although other members might have other solutions

If it's a 4x4 you can remove the blocks under the rear leaf springs which are 1 1/4" tall.

I was looking at them yesterday and looked at the truck. I'm wondering how in the hell do you get the top bolt out of the factory shackle. Do you or anyone else have a tip on removing it.
