Default 99 ford ranger update

So last thursday my lowering kit came in i was so excited that a couple of buddys and I spent the whole night trying to finish it. But with the rust that was covering all of the bolts on the rear end we were not able to finish it. so then i spent the rest of friday and saturday finishing it. Now i am driving it daily and loving it. the only problem is the front tires rubbing on the inner fenders but im gonna cut the "problems" out tomorrow.

What do you think...

thanks guys... Its a djm 4/5 drop kit with the flip in the rear and the upper and lower control arms in the front with new 2inch drop springs... When i first got it together it sat pretty level in my driveway, but since ive driven it the front has settled giving it a little more rake than i originaly wanted. So now the plan is to put another 1 or 2 inch block under the rear axle to level it out. And yes there will be some other kind of rims on here soon, i just have to find some that i like and are not the hoopty wheels.
