By a little stiffer do you mean heavier oil? and by lower ride height should i just change the shock location to the other holes?

Harder springs lower your ride height and change the shock position to a more vertical position.

Get the Traxxas Anaconda street tires. I'm assuming you won't be jumping and the surface is relatively smooth.

Use 80 weight oil all the way around. Drop the ride height as low as it can go. Get the truck to corner on all four wheels not just three.
