Drop Shackle questions?

I tried searching but didn't find the answers I was looking for.

I'm thinking of putting 2" drop shackles on the rear of my truck.

Will lowering the truck change the amount of payload I can carry?

Will it change the trucks towing capacity?

Does it cause the springs to compress a little or does it just change the mounting angle?


Thanks.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!
