Axle flip (springs below the axle), new beams (3" front drop), lowering springs (for another 2" up front), all this together = low and sweet, without sacrificing drive-ability.

then hell be running a 5/4, wich will look goofy as shit. so either flip the shackles after that, or just get drop beams to start out with

Flip kits are rated at 83-97 = 4" and 98+ = 5" your best options are DJM 3" Drop Beams with a DJM 4" flip kit (if you ever plan on bagging or juicing the truck you will want these beams.) Or you can go for the 2" Belltech drop coils and flip your rear hangers and shackles. You can also do a combination of the drops to get 5" in the front and then whatever in the backusually 6 or 7". Here is a link to a list of my static drop components in my vendor section http://www.fordrangerforum.com/vendo...ent-links.html If you have any questions on any specific components please feel free to email me brian@illusivefabrications.com for the fastest replys.

you can flip your hangars in the back. that'll give you 2 inches and level it out, if you dont wanna do anything to the front
