Smile lower rear end

I inherited my dad's 1992 F150 and would like to know the best way to lower the rear. It looks a little too "stink bug" ish, maybe a few inches ????? Thaks , Kelli

The second spring up from the bottom needs to come out...that should drop ya good. If you want to go another route. Belltech makes 2 inch drop shackles for the rear end.

You could also take out the rear blocks for probably a 1.5 inch drop. Or my favorite, level the front

Definitely level the front. Get longer coil springs (leveling springs) or coil spring spacers
