Default 1994 4wd ford ranger lowering it need some help

hey i got a 94 4wd ranger and i wanna lower the front. if i heat the springs i can only go an inch before it hits the transfer case. but an inch ain't nothing i was wonder what i can i saw on a post that spindles are not made for rangers which sucks cause that was my only hope. i lowered the rear end by taking out the 3 inch block so now my truck is sitting leveled. any ideas on the front end part?

Your best bet would be to sell your truck and buy a 2wd. The 4wd TTB trucks are impossible to lower because the axle will come into contact with the engine cross member.

Ive seen a few people lower 4x4 ibeam rangers and explorers with the 2" belltech drop coils. Heating/cutting the springs is the worst thing you could do to them.
