You can adjust preload, which will essentially lower and raise the truck. However, if you "lower" the car by reducing the preload, you will have more droop, which is something you must account for.

I preferred to lower the OL by putting a couple shims between the shock tower and the chassis. And the same amount of shims on the ball studs that go to the link rods to keep the geometry the same.
