Default lowering the rear and front of 4x4??

Hey i was wondering if on a 1989 Ranger 4x4 you could cut the front springs? I'm not too worried about ride comfortability right now, but if you can, how much? I didn't see any rubber seats on the spring so I don't think it would do much harm. I was thinking about 2" drop and the rear could be lowered 2" too and how?

Why in the hell would you lower a 4wd?

it sits too high in my opinion, and only or less two inches.

is it already lifted? Sitting too high dont sound like it is stock. If I am correct the 89 4x4's are only a couple inches higher than the 2wd's. My son has a 92' 4x4 and it is short. even compaired to the new stock versions.

well maybe it just seems high to me, and yes it's just stock. I think putting wheel spacers on will help the look, instead of major work to the suspension.
