I’ll be following this. I’d love to have my truck at a more usable height. These trucks are too tall to work out of easily or comfortably.

I’m pretty sure you can get dropped spindles for the 01-10 trucks.

The only thing available for the 2011+ is either do a custom drop spindle in front, or do a custom coil over setup in front, which requires some cutting on your factory shock mounts, and new control arms.

Not sure how viable of an option the drop spindle is, since the one guy I found that makes them said a dually would need a 24” wheel to clear the knuckle. You probably wouldn’t have that issue on a SRW truck, since the wheel offset is totally different.

yeip 01 - 10 no problem 11+ no such parts
i have mine sitting on the bump stops and really need lower control arms or knuckles
i even thought about cutting the stop brackets off and re-welding them farther up just hate to cut the frame if i don't have to.
i would probably reposition the leaf spring mounts in the rear to get the back lower than it is now if i could find a solution to the front
