Default NEED ADVICE!! found used lowering kit

i found this lowering kit, its a djm 2/3 drop. this is what he emailed me.

"Yes, the lowering kit is for sale separately for $300 per the ad, and are a year and a half old and used.


Kit includes front and rear shocks, front springs, and the rear shackle and flip kit (2 inch front drop, 3 inch rear, levels out the truck).


I will also include brand new rear leaf spring hangers (which are known for rusting out), and a pair of brand new front end links (Which are known for breaking) as part of that price.


It was on my V-8 swapped 1998 2wd Ford Ranger, and performed wonderfully."

is it worth buying used? if im going for it ill offer lower but it would be a 300 mile drive to check it out, probly $50-60 in gas. what y'all think?? thanks!!!

as for the price, i think hes high, you don't really need the shocks with a 2/3, you can get a flip kit, and the springs for less then this

Try to talk him down. If you cant get him down a little lower, leave it and keep looking. The springs ~100$ the flip ~50. But it really up to you.
