What are my options?

(I know this is a basic question. I've read F150 forums and not seen a clear answer, since everyone's usually going the other way )

Those look like the dimensions for the stock shock options, which are different depending on what suspension package was placed on the truck from factory. plasticuser is looking to lower his truck, a stock shock replacement is not going to lower his truck. Last time I checked RA only sells stock replacement type parts.

In the end I got a front *whatever you want to call it* that is 2.5" shorter, and a 2" longer rear shackle. I'll remove the 2" spacer block, giving a 4" drop at back and 2.5" at front.

It's not much, but it's something.

I'll do it as a summer project.

Thank you everyone for your advice, parts suggestions, wisdom, and debate.

Always fun to watch
