Heres an option for you nbs crew cab guys that want to drop 4" in the rear and not use stupid short shackles.

I'm cheap and I wanted to retain the factory ride so I went with 2" spindles and some custom stuff in the rear. I did an axle flip to get me 6" of drop and a shackle reversal for 2" of lift to net me 4" of drop in the rear. Worked out well and only cost me $36.91 to lower the rear.
New spring hangers for the shackle reversal:

Hangers, U-bolts, plates, and spring perch:

I didn't want to lift it back up, notch it, or have the rear sag driving around with a load so helper bags were in store. Used some Re7's that I had laying around, some 3/16" plate, and some schrader valves.

Thanks!

It's a Magnaflow number 12198. Sounds great to me not loud but has a nice little rumble.

hey man i was wondering how much clearance you got between the frame and the axle. i'm wanting to get the exact stance you have in the rear but im sceared im going to have to do a c-notch, since the truck is practically brand new. i cant bring myself to cut it
