It’s hard to see because everything is black but I had the truck lowered in the rear to level it all out.

 

Dropped shackles and block removed

 

Now I just need to figure how to just adjust the headlights (they’re pointing up now that the truck is level)

 

I should mention the ride feels the same and it did make a difference getting in and out of the truck, it’s easier for me now

Not a very good picture but should give you good starting point. The screw is located on top of the headlight8ee2e5b5942f17df1843fe74af8b374a.jpg

Im in the same boat. Sold my wheels today so now im riding on those exact stocks.  Only thing i like about them is the ride.  I found what wheels i want. But i just dont know if i want to spend 4k on wheels and tires

I went up 1 inch all around the other day, so I'm at 3/6 and cannot be happier. Took it to a different shop this time and they found a few things done incorrectly the first time around. I'm not one to get out of paying for no reason but I think I'm going to pursue this a little bit deeper.

What was wrong
Most of the back half of the truck was left untightened. The owner of the shop that picked it up is going to make me a full report and I'm hopefully going to pick it up tomorrow morning.

It sounds like you made you're mind up on which wheels anyways. I can't make up my mind, the only thing I'm sure of is they will be 22's.

Are you going to 20's then? I think the 22's fill the wheel housing a little better, but don't want 24's because of the ride issues.
