Ok, so I want to level out my 03' 1500 Reg. Cab. I thought about getting the DJM rear drop shackles but wanted to see if anyone has tried them out. Their website says 1/2" to 1 1/2" drop results however some installation problems might occur. Anyone have any comments or previous experience with these? Thanks in advance......

I did the DJM's from Stylin Concepts. Took 45 mins and got 1 1/2 inches. Had no install probs.

Grease the bushing very well inside and out side were they attach to the hangers, that will help avoid sqeaking...

hi
I have a set of s1s shackles on my truck now and they are great. but I need to bring the rear back to stock height ( I am using it as a tow vech. for my sons SRT-4 drag car) and with the car, trailer, tools and 4 to 6 people I cant use the lowered shakles anymore.
Maybe we can work something out.

Hey Dragonbro, did you want to go lower? how about the overload spring removal mod? I was thinkin of doin this... I wanted to try all the cheap mods before I spend money on a flip or drop leafs.

I just removed my middle leafs. It's probably not for everyone, but I'm happy!

I'm going to go up instead of down...........I'm waiting on some extra cash to buy the 3inch front spindle lift and a rear block lift. for now I'll put some bigger tires on the stock 17 inch alloy wheeels I have. I plan on switching to 20's when I can afford it.
