Default Lowering 2014 F150 Platinum

Hey everyone. I am new to the 150 market and well I would like to lower the rear about 2" to level it out but have been reading about vibratiations and issues with that. So what would you guys recommend for lowering the rear down a couple of inched to make my new ride level?

why start a new thread about something that has been discussed so many times, even in really recent threads?

Welcome to the forum, MWDHAND. Hope you enjoy your stay.
My advice to ya is along guidry's line:
I'd do a lot of reading when you sign up. There are a ton of posts on a ton of subjects. More than you can probably think up. Use the Search box to get into the subject you are looking for. There are a lot of threads on shackles. Have a look as you can always ask questions right in the thread that is helping you the most.
Good luck with your truck!

Wow, some great support from fellow members...

You said you read about vibration problems, so I'm sure you already did some research.

A drop shackle is what you are looking for. Some times it creates a little vibration, sometimes it doesn't. To correct it all you need are some pinon angle shims.

Its not about "support"…there are already too many threads about the same questions/concerns/problems…why not use the search function or click around a little bit before starting a new thread? I'm all for helping someone out, i have received plenty of help from members here myself... but come on man, this question has been answered hundreds of times in dozens of threads...
