Default Lowering the Back of a 01 2500

Truck in question is a 01 2500 4x4 with a cummins, sitting on 295/75/16 tires. It is stock suspension height. The dam thing is too tall for most 5th wheel / goose neck trailers. They all sit way uphill on it. I also hate the way it sits way ass high, I understand why it is like that but it is excessive. I have had 10k behind it on trailer and it don't hardly drop at all.

What I want to do is take the factory 4" block out and put a 2" block in its place. Has anyone done this? I know most people bring the front up to level them but in my situation I think this way will work better. Just trying to be sure there is no issues with this I am over looking.

Pretty easy swap. You shouldn't have any issues at all. You will need some new u-bolts.

We actually carry a rear 2" lift leaf springs that guys have used to get the stance you are looking for and eliminate the block completely. The high power/torque guys like that setup to help with axle wrap issues associated with blocks while still keeping the vehicle relatively low.
