You would need a set of DJM 3" drop Ibeams and a set of ranger splash coils for the front and a flip kit and 1" block for the rear to do it the right way. Some good Doetsch Nitro Slammer drop shocks would also be a good idea. Your other option would be the DJM beams, Belltech 2" drop coils (splash coils are 1" shorter) and a rear flip kit and flip the rear hangers and shackles for a 5/6 drop. All parts available through the web site in my signature.

I still need to add the lowering blocks to my site, as for the splash coils you will need to check with a ford dealer or junk yard probably.

how would you go about cutting to coils? i know it's better to get the drp beams but i'm broke, you can only cut 1 to 1.5 coils right?
