Re: Suspension lowering
No one here can DEFINITELY tell you what needs to be undone on your truck or the cost, because they would have to SEE what has been done in the first place.
#1 Front blocks are very dangerous! you need to Eliminate those! Now whatever size they are, is what needs to be removed from the rear.
Example: If the front are 4" and in the rear you have 8" blocks you will need to replace the rear ones with some 4". Or you could have 6" spring w/2" blocks or stock springs with 8" blocks, or 2" springs and 6" blocks, or any combination[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
#2 Driveshafts they had to have been altered! depending on how much they were lengthened and how much it comes back down, will determine if they need to be re-altered. I would "Guess" if it only drops 2" they may be OK. You won't know for sure until you try to re-install them after the suspension is dropped back down.
#3 Steering mods, Again they may be OK. Depending on what has been done, and how much it comes down.
A good place to start would be measure the front blocks, and measure the rear blocks. also tell us if they Stacked two different blocks in the rear (I saw a dodge yesterday with 2" and 4" blocks stacked, held together with the u-bolts[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img])
Also find out the gear ratio! (if they are 4.88's or 5.16's you are not going to want to go down to 35"s, hopefully they are 4.11 or 4.56![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )
