I'm pretty sure you would have to buy dream beams, but not positive

Your beams would be close to hitting, if not hitting. I had my coils cut 3" on stock beams. With that set up I had about 2.5" clearance between the frame to the beams.

I took off between 1.75 and 2 coils. After removing the bump stops the front end got lowered another 1" since I was riding on the bump stops.

I do not recommend you to cut your coils. Ride quality sucks ass.

Do it right the first time, cut coils ride like crap and are not safe. Any more than a 2" coil drop on an ibeam ranger will not be able to be re-aligned. Belltech coils and DJM drop beams is the best way to get 5" out of the front.

if you do decide to cut your coils watch how much you cut. a buddy of mine cut his awhile back and he cut a bit too much off and lets just say the jingling noise in the front wasnt bells. lol
