Default Bored and want to drop my truck now

Question. Ive installed 2 inch lift coils and some lift shackles on the back. I want to drop it using 3 inch coils up front and flipping the back. My question is, the tires I pu ton during the whole, let me lift my truck phase are 30's on stock chrome rims. You think I can clear those with the drop I mentioned? Will it look stupid? This is the look Id like to achieve.

Here is what I have now

A shackle flip will look like this:

(This is not from a Ranger)



A longer shackle will lower your truck even more if you flip them.

As far as the coils, my guess says they will rub like a bitch. But I don't know.

I have the rear flip lit from crown. If you use it with the stock shackle you get 5 inches of drop in back, which may be too much for the 30" tires but if you use the lift shackle with the flip kit it will bring you back up a couple inches to clear those tires.

You may want to do 2 inch springs up front to begin with and then add djm upper and lower arms for 2 more inches once you burn through the 30's if you are eventually going with smaller tires.

Reason being with my 3" coils I am almost certain I got more than 3 inches of drop. Of course I didn't measure before and after although i should have.I'm riding on stock tires (around 27") and the front sits low, not rubbing low but tucked a little and I had to get the djm uppers and cam bolts to align it.

I think Im gonna do the 2 inch for now, flip the back. I can boost up the back if its too low with my adjustable lift shacks.

----------

I love how your truck sits btw too

Thanks I appreciate it. And your plan sounds pretty good. It's a good place to start and easy enough to go lower, and you will want to go lower. lol
