Lowering my 84 GMC Truck

What is the best way to lower my truck that with out costing me a lot? I bought some shackles to lower the rear but they didn't work cause the leafs would hit the bed allow for clearance that was needed.

You could pull a leave or two out and cut one loop off of the front coils, it will ride and steer much better and will drop the front 2", use a cutoff saw or disc wheel not a torch or the coil will lose it's temper. All free just time.
