your options are as follows:
1 dearch leafs for a small to medium drop ( custom see a spring shop )
2 get shorter shackles for a couple inch drop ( not sure if avail. maybe custom )
3 mount axle on top of leafs for 6-7" drop ( custom- will need c-section or notch )
4 experiment with removing one leaf out of spring pack ( ghetto but its been done )

Don't forget you may need driveline shims to get the pinion back into its proper angle. On the Titan the driveline can be very sensitive to slight changes.

the shackles give only a 1" drop, any lower the shackles would hit bed. If you want to go more than 1" you can get the leafs de-arched or do the shackles and de-arch the springs. I would do that before I would remove a leaf.

Mcgaughy's makes a 2/3 kit(what i have on mine) an springtech makes a 2/3 an a 2/5 kit, but neither one is cheap. And don't forget to either cut down or remove the bumpstops.
