Question lower but still durible

i have a 93 ranger. i wanted to drop it a lil for looks and for traction..i think the rear is to high and to stiff. i want to lower it maybe a inch or 2 but still have the duribility. so no flipping my leafs..sorry but alota people tell me to do that...it drops it. but thats it. its then usless. so any other idea would be good. thanks

thats teh strength of the bolts.

youll need 8 each of the following
and they all need to be grade 8

3/8x1 bolts
washers
nylock nuts (they have nylon around the threads, so the bolts cant back out of the nuts from road vibration
