Default Lowering further with an Eibach kit.

Hey everyone, I installed the eibach 2/4 drop using springs in the front and leafs and shackles in the rear. I figured i can use the belltech struts to lower the front to my liking, but what can i do for the rear thats not a flip kit? Would a 2" shackle with the new hangers bring it down more? All the specs i see online tell how far the shackle brings the truck down, they dont say if the hanger actually lowers it to. Im looking to bring it down another 2 inches. Im just curious what i could use to bring the rear down another two inches with this kit, thats not a flip.

Thanks! Bill.

Hangers usually drop another in, so for example if you did 2in shackles, and new hangers, youd be at about 3 inches.

Maybe you are going to need a c notch also to have more travel for the axle and reduce the risk of bottoming out
