I have a 2008 silverado 2wd crew cab that has the all american package(20" wheels) and I want to know what is the best way to lower the back end by either shackles or blocks and want to know all the pros and cons because I still want to keep a good riding truck

My 07 new extended is the same, it sits higher then some 4X4's. What is the reason for a 2X4 to be so high, the blocks don't have any performance enhancing value, is there something I'm over looking?
