Default lower

ok i know this is not the right way to lower a ranger. My sisters boyfriend wants to know how low you can go with just springs i told him to just save up and do it the right way with djm parts or kits but this is the way he wants to do it

how many inches can he drop with just springs

thanks

is he going to cut the springs or is he going to get lowering springs? because the lowest i believe you can go with just springs is 2" in the front the rear he'll need a flip kit and that will just about go 3-4 inches depending on how big of a block he puts in...

Take the truck to an alignment shop to be put back into spec, they should be able to supply the correct alignment eccentrics needed.
