Hi Burt,
I would not lower the truck if I was going to pull a trailer. I have towed large trailers with my 1500 Chevy truck and had to raise the rear. It can alter the stearing to the point that it could affect the handling of the truck. I think our SSR's are rated for 200lb on the ball. That is with the stock springs. It would be an issue with the weight of the trailer on the ball with lowering springs. I have seen a couple of SSR's pulling trailers, they could be of more help to you.

Mine Works Great

I dropped both front and rear using ground force springs.
I trailer 2 bikes and have had no problem.
Bike 1 Buell S3T 550 lbs.
Suzuki GSRX 1000 500 lbs.
Plus the trailer , still moderate tounge load 100 +- lbs
I have also hauled 2500 lbs of flagstone 50 miles with my SSR.
I knew the trailer was on, but still not even a hiccup
