Default new to rangers wanting to drop!!!

I just got my 1996 ranger XLT regular cab this week. I want to know how I could get a 4 inch front drop and 5 inch rear drop. or should I just go with a 3/4 drop? I just want my truck lowered and to look good. 3/4 or a 4/5 drop would be amazing. What would be the best way to achieve the 4/5 drop? I am new to rangers and I love my truck it is the 2.3 auto, but this summer I plan on a 5 speed swap. Thanks in advance -Jesse

Im looking to do the 4/5 drop my self and i know your best bet for either of the two setups is probably going to be a djm suspension kit. You can buy them at alot of different places, but there is a fellow member on here that has a company called Illusive design and fabrications, and they have had the best prices that I found so far for this type of thing.

Happy lowering,
Eric

Im lowered 5/7 on 20s with dream beams and drop coils up front and a flip kit and flipped shackles out back with a mini notch and air shocks and mine looks great and rides great. It doesnt ride like a lowered truck and it tucks rim in the back like hell. Just do it right the first time and you wont ever have to touch it again unless u get like me and get the urge to bag it. Haha

thanks yeah saw about the illusive fabrications thing and emailed him. Very helpful. I will be getting my 4/5 drop here in about a month or so probably. I'm going with DJM 3'' drop beams with ranger splash coils and a 4'' flip kit with a 1" lowering block. Thanks guys I'll post pics when its done. Did my bedliner today. It looks sweet.

Yeah for now I'm going to save up and get the 3 inch drop beams from illusive fab and get a 4 inch flip kit. later I will get a 2 inch lowering block and 2 inch lowering coils. so Eventually I will have a 5/6 drop. I'm so pumped. Thanks for the help everyone.
