Well, maybe. I changed out the stock Rancho shocks on my 2500 with a set of Bilsteins. I dropped the back with a set of 2" McGaughy's drop shackles to take out the cat in heat rake. I installed a set of 1500 lb SumoSprings urethane cellular foam supports in place of the axle bump stops, front and raar, which offers air bag quality ride, and I inflate the tires in accordance with the tire maker load pressure chart based on the actual axle weight and the ride is pretty darn close to the ride of a 1500.
Even with the back end drop, with over a ton of material in the back end it just starts getting to a level stance. And the Sumo's really provide a quality ride while offering a lot of support.
If one wants to get an ear full, stop in at a major truck stop and talk with company drivers who have adaptive cruise on their semi trucks. You will learn the latest swear words.
