Default Lowering HELP

So I want to lower my ranger but don't have the money to spend on flip kits or I beams so my question is is there a way I can just remove the shocks front and back to get it lower. I'm not concerned about ride as I won't be taking it offroad are there any other cheap options or DIY "kits"? Help is greatly appreciated.

Um....not sure if serious or troll but removing shocks will pretty much just turn your truck into a water bed but yes you can lower it 2/2 for about $20

Cut 2 coils off the front and flip the rear shackles. It'll ride decent

I find it interesting that this is in the "lifted suspension" topics...
