Oh why oh why can't this be easy. Haha. I don't mind how it rides with torsion bars cranked. I just know it's not good for the truck

with coilovers you don't need shocks the shocks are a part of the coilover.
you'll need the brackets, and coilovers with the right spring rate.

Do you know a good place for coilover for say up to a 4 inch drop? I've been looking. Very hard to find

You could always use a set of reindexed torsion keys so that you dont have to loosen up the adjuster bolts. https://www.illusivefabrications.com...roducts_id=437
