Perfect lowering!

So I figured out what I want! Splash Coils and flip the shackles with splash leafs. 1/3" drop on my 98 XLT... Now all I have to do is find a splash I can pillage all this from...
So if anyone knows where I can find this stuff PLEASE let me know. Iím going to try the scrap yard tomorrow. I saw RedNeckStone's splash I knew exactly what I wanted. Also this is going to be the most Inexpensive way to get the drop I am looking for!

Opinions would be nice thanks, Cam

Will splash coils even fit, since they used I-beams? Get on ebay and look up the roush (thunderbolt) 2" drop coils for 98-06 rangers. Zach actually put 2" lowering coils on his splash when he had it, so if that's the look you liked, go for those. They run about $50 shipped so arent that expensive. I would advise against getting used coils and leafs, esp. since you are looking at getting something from the early-mid 90's.

Roush Coils will get you the least amount of drop just below 2 inches even though they say 2. DJM 2 inch springs or belltech 3 inch springs.
