Just as an addition to this, the axle u-bolt nuts on my 2008 are 21mm and not 18mm so YMMV.

i installed the Rough Country lowering shakle kit on my 07. Like it alot. It may be my imagination, but it seems to allow the rear tires to hook up alot better.

I lowered because mine is a 2wd
Lariet. I thought it would look a little stupid raised. Plus if i need more ground clearance i also have a 07 4wd sitting in the driveway with a 2.5" level on her.
