Post Lowering IFS

I know that technically a 74IH truck is not a hot rod but when Im done Im hoping that it will be one heck of a sleeper. My question is does any one know how to lower the front end of a truck with IFS other than cutting or heating the springs? There is not alot of aftermarket stuff available and I dont wnt to completely mickeymouse the front end for obvious reasons.

Lower the front end? I don't think so.
The definition of a "sleeper" is a vehicle that appears bone-stock usually down to the stock size wheels and tires but has a heart-stopping, mood-altering, absolutely screaming high HP engine with "quiet" exhaust that allows you to slide up next to an unsuspecting dork in a 5.0 Mustang and blow his freakin' doors off from a rolling start.
The stock size tire thing makes the rolling start much more effective than a smoke-producing sideshow with no forward motion.
