Welcome to FRF

they dont make drop kits for the edge. Your gonna have a hard time dropping it since it has torsion bars.

Best you can do it uncrank the torsion bars to lower the front some and then remove the blocks in the rear.

Welcome to FRF!

like STL said it is going to be pretty hard to drop a edge. dropping the back will be no problem but the front has torsion bars so thats going to be a challenge. if you really want to drop it your going to need to do a front end conversion with a 2wd ranger with coil spring front end. if you want to change the ride height lifting it would be much easier and less expensive in your case.

ok, im not really sure what the rear ends are like on these as in weather they set on top of the leaf springs or below the leaf springs. if they set below, you could do a rear end "flip kit". its a pain in the ass, i suggest you dedicate a weekend to it if you can do it this way. its kinda hard but you have to pull all the brake lines and drain the rear end. then put the rear end on top of the leafs. here is a couple of pics of our old 1976 dodge d100. we ended up getting about 5 inches of drop out of doing the flip kit. the front we jerry rigged it by cutting coils (they didnt make drop spindles for them at the time). idk what you could do about the front on those

stock height


after the flip kit and coils
