Hi, don't know the source of your rumour, but I have been driving a LWB truck for 3 years and, have not had any problems with stability. In fact, physics would dictate that a longer wheel base should be more stable.
The only "switching" problems that I have had (and this is common on any vehicle with a locker or posi rear end) is a tenancy to loose lateral stability on an icy surface. Putting it into 4 hi will solve this problem.

For lowering, you can use Eibach, Ground Force, Belltech, or stock SS parts. If you use SS stuff, get the front springs and all 4 SS Bilsteins then use a set of GF 2" rear drop springs. Probably the best ride out there, the stock SS rides very smooth while being not being too stiff.
