    need a lil more low in the rear...... im lost in threads.....

    I just lowered my 03 hd with belltech front 2 inch spindles and jlp shackles out back... front looks great but the rear needs about another inch..... ive seen removing a leaf/changing out the front hangers.. and a few other odd options..... i really hate to modify/swap out front hangers ..... are there any other options?

    Get lowering leafs in the rear. 03 had an extra spring added to the leaf pack for added tow capacity.

    You could go with some lowering springs, which are typically 3" drop, and "fine tune" where you want it with the JLP shackles
