    If you can't find a source I have a set of mono leafs that will drop your front end 3-4 inches with a stock axle. PM me if interested.

    The word you want is 'dropped'. Its a dropped axle. You can get the front down by using VW tires and wont have to go to all the work and expense of a dropped axle. I have been running those tires of the front of several of my trucks and cars for 20 years. They dropped my 57 Chevy so low I get sparks sometimes

    Shot you a PM, but you might also want to look at flipping the rear axle up on top of the springs...with the rest of the truck low it might not need more in the front
