Removing springs depends on teh truck My 2007 5.9 2500 is not able to have leafs removed due to orientation pin issues but all the trucks in all years seem to be different. as for a flip kit, moving the spring to below the axle, yes that is possible just look up axle flip kit. there is a lowered dodge that has been flipped, it was a phototruck for Amsoil, Nick is think is the name of the guy who owns it and its for sale, I'll see if I can find it.

I learned this. If you do a flip kit weld a new spring perch on the axle. You will save money (if you weld) and it is a lot nicer set up then using the kits. Just a WAG I would say it would give you 5-6" of drop.
