MA77US on here has lowered his ute.
He put 1.5" lowering blocks, and lowered leaf springs in his ute, without any problems.

you need bigger wheels to lower it more than 1 inch safely. 18 inch plus

or you could buy lowered springs and do it properly, then use any wheels you want

yea with the au and above series , the shockie is mounted between the spring and the wheel so u can only put 1" lower blocks in providing you are running 17" inch rims . 15s will not fit with the lowering blocks in (found out the hard way lol). The springs are easy to fit . I am running super low leafs in the rear on my series two ute .
