    Rear lower

    How involved is it to lower just the rear an inch or two? What's standard.
    Also. I put 300lbs directly on the hitch when hauling a dirt bike. Does the esky self level or will it sag making lowering and hauling my dirt bike a no go?

    its probably gonna involve lowering springs and altering the rods on the level sensors for the auto leveling system

    Re: Rear lower

    Hotchkis used to have a lowering kit for the standard length model that was just springs, gave about 2" to 2 1/2" drop, I used them on a 2007, and Eibach has springs that work, you just have to call them because I don't think they list them alone on their web site, I can probably supply the spring number that I used from them if you need it, I used their rear springs on a 2009.

    It will self level with the air system. I tow a 5800# boat/trailer and you can hear the air pump come on as soon as the 500 or so pounds of tongue weight are realized.

    Re: Rear lower

    I lowered mine with springs and shock extenders, then grab some 3" screws and replace the leveling rod with the screw (just have to cut the heads off the screws). It works great and still levels with a load in the bed. I would contact tony (norcal ss) he hooked me up and was real fast
