Default Want to lower....

my 1996 Ranger. It has 14 inch wheels and 225/70/14 tires. I want to still be able to run those wheels and tires. Do you think I could do a rear flip and two inch drop coils on the fronts and still run my tire set up?

yea I would say DJM 3/4 ibeams and a flip kit but your truck looks like it has alot of rake to it. So after that you may even want a 1" block.

Those tires will be fine all the way down to about 5/7" though they will rub just a tad on big bumps. Won't rub at all at 3/4" as recommended before.
