My truck has the longer shackles in the back but my truck still doesnt sit level, is there anything i could do to simply lower 1 or 2 more inches out of it, keep in mind mcgaughy's is a hop and a skip away

2" Drop shackles won't give you a full 2" in the back on a NBS truck.... I'd just live with it until you drop it more. It most likely looks a ton better w/o the stock rake in the rear anyways.

Go to autozone and get the overload spring clamps. It clamps the front of the overload leaf to the spring pack. Gives you .75" of drop for under $10. I used that on my truck to finish leveling it out. It didn't affect my ride at all since it only clamps the front of the spring.

Will clamping the Overload help in wheel hop or change the rear suspension at all?

I'm sure you could. That's probably what you have to do to install the overload clamps anyways.

just buy the right hardware. It's two clip/clamp things and they are only 10 bucks

would clamping the rear of the spring as well get just a little more drop? i went out and c-clamped the front and it brought my fenders to within half an inch of each other.
I guess yah you would be gettin a little more...but realizing that now you have front and back clamed, your ride will be effected big time now
