yes if you drop it, it will still be durable, hell mines dropped 4/5, and i still use is like a truck, pullin a trailer, haulin crap in the back... and believe it or not, the ride quality has improved being lowered than stock... they have really come a long way in the devlopement of drop suspensions... i had a honda that was dropped 2". and that thing rode like it was on square wheels, my ranger dropped 4/5 rides like a corvette


here was my 2001 that was dropped 2/2... coil springs in the front, and shackle flip in the rear






and i know that the suspension setup is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay different from 2001 to 1993, but its just to show the amount of drop

stock rear height of my 06 for compairson with same wheels, and tires

You don't have to shorten your Drive shaft, who ever told you that don't know what he's talking about!

you don't have to shorten the driveline, i had the same thoughts before i did mine, and i also thought about pinion angle, and a million other questions, everything will be fine. the slip yoke on the end of the driveline is made to float on the rear of the trans
