I have never lowered a truck, and my opinion of lowering a truck I will keep to myself. But what I can tell you that lowering the rear only will throw off the geometry of the design and it seems to me a few degrees of shims would indeed be necessary to keep the suspension components in alignment. I would say yes.

If would toss off the geometry if you didn't, so yes.
