Default Drivetrain upgrades any opinions or ideas welcome.

hey guys I am thinking about doing a rear swap out of a 1998 4.0 Eddie Bauer explorer 4.10 (L.S) into my 1999 3.0 xlt ranger 4.10 (open). can the disc brakes hook right up to my rear drum system. and are all the dimensions and designs the same, i am assuming they are. i was also thinking about a lift i have a shackle kit from pep boys laying around which is about 2 to 4 inch, my front bars are at stock level how much lift do you think i will be able to get in the front. any other drivetrain sugestions are welcome. btw my truck is a 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0 4X4 ext. cab stepside.

flip the springs on the expo it will give you lift axle to the top, yes you can hook in your e-brake lines to the disk, and yes its the same size.
