Default 3/5 parts on order, question though...

I ordered 3" drop springs and the 5" flip kit. I will get the bug as soon as they arrive and want to throw them on ASAP. However my end game will include DJM upper and lowers and maybe a 1" block for the rear to end at 5/6 total. I also at that point will buy shocks. I hardly drive my truck but for the amount of work this will take should I wait to do it all at once or is worthwhile to throw them on now?? TIA

I say do it all at once.
I'm not into the lowered Rangers, but lifting it brings the same issues.
In order to take the coils off, you have to strip it down to where just the upper and lower arms are connected. Then all you have to do is replace the arms. The whole job should take 6-8 hours max.

What needs to come off to get coils out:
-sway bar links
-spindle
-brakes
-shocks

What doesn't need to come out
-upper arm
-lower arm.

So why not right?
