I don think you have T bars. You could put some coil spacer in to bring the front up a bit.

Take out the lift block in the rear. You may need new U-Bolts though.

unless its a 4x4, i dont think its got a lift block. you could flip your shackles, wich would lower the back about 2 inches, or get lift coils or spacers for the front

It's a 2 wheel drive and I don't think there is any blocks on there rear end . Where would it be ? Inbetween the leaf and the rear end ? Or there the leavsprings meet the bed ?

Next time please post all info on the truck. That would have made this a lot easier for people to help you out.

From all we knew it was possibly a 96 green truck
