Finally got around to making my first post on the site. Been lurking around a while and finally joined, buy never posted.

Anyways, thinking about doing the drop myself. I was going to have my cousin help me, but our schedules keep conflicting. My experience with suspension work is only installing a set of drop shackles. I need to know what tools I will need and any tips would also be apreciative. Also, with the pinion shims, which way do they face, the big side facing the rear or front of the truck. Thanks in advance for any help.

What year is your truck, On the new body style trucks you do not need a pinion shim. You adjust the two nut on the top of the axle to set you pinion angle.
