Many of you know my truck but for those that don't its a 2004 GMC sierra ext cab 4x4 . I recently took my lift keys out and replaced them with the stock ones. I have them decranked a little bit. Anyhow I'm trying to get the rear to match so far all I've done with it is removed the blocks from the rear. From what I can tell it needs to go about 2" lower to ride level. I was going to get these

And also some shorter u-bolts. Is there anything else I need? Thanks for the help

Yes, those would drop the rear down the 2" you want.
Ok cool thanks man. Should i replace the rear springs as well or will the stockers be ok? If so what do you guys reccomend to run?

With your HP, I'd get a set of Cal tracs or some other sort of traction bar.

Longer shackles will also add a little more leaf movement. Not good for planting power

Do you still have the factory lift block in there?

Id like to get cal tracs soon as well, and all i did was put the stock keys back in, and took that rear block out. Other than that i havent touched anything im planning on buying what i need soon tho just not sure on what all i want. I dont wanto buy a whole kit and pull all the suspention apart , plus i dont wanto go that low. Basically trying to get my angles up frount as level as i can on the stock keys so it wont be as bad on the front end with 4x4 launches.
