How to lower my truck?

1993 chevy silverado. I am thinking about lowering my truck and was wondering the easiest and cheapest way to do it?

Find it's *******, make an incision, reach in, grab, and twist.

Sorry, couldn't help it, but I can't stand lowered trucks

Back on topic,
Is it a 4wd or a 2wd?

2" drop shackles will give your truck the "level" look. u can get them at oreilly's for around $50.

It's 2wd! Yeah i'm not going for the low rider look, but my truck is a lil too high. I was thinking about going for the raised look but decided to go with a little lower look. I think a 2 inch drop would b decent maybe 3?

If you want a 2/4 then you have a few options to go. You can do springs in the front with hangers and shackles in the rear or you can do spindles in the front with the same setup in the rear.

That would be the best way to go because it won't be bouncy like it would with drop spindles.

the old school lowriders just got a torch and heated the springs till they softened and lowered the vehicle. NOT safe or comfortable but very cheap.

without spending huge cash if you can find a good auto febricator, he can make you a set of 4" shackles for a hundred or so, and he could also heat your springs to lower the front 2" (or you could buy new springs)
