Default Dropping my truck!! ADVICE NEEEDED!!

ok so i called the only place i know that can drop a truck. I have a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT EXT cab and i want the 4/5 drop. I called them and they said the DJM4/5 drop kit is $700, then $350 to install it, and $100 for an alignment.... a total out the door lookin at $1150 Is this a good kit and price to do what i want? I want the fenders to be near the top of the tires. Right now i have some factory ford 15'' rims, but gonna go with Saleen 18'' rims. What do you guys think? thanks in advance!!!

The DJM 4/5 kit will fit your needs perfectly, but $350 to install? Sheesh, I had a fellow member help me with mine and it only costed me the price of Burger King after we were done.
