Icon5 2/4 drop on Gen 3...info needed

My truck is a 1997 2wd/4cyl/5 speed/reg cab & bed and has the 7.5" rear axle. I am thinking of doing a rear flip kit with Hardbody rear shocks and 2" drop coils in the front and was wondering how it will sit. I am concerned that the rear will sit lower then the front with the flip and coils as most pictures of 3/4 drops I have seen the trucks look level. I was going to combine Belltech 6700 1" drop shackles after the flip because I really am only looking for a 2/3 drop. I like the rear slightly higher. Right now the rear end sits about 2.5" higher than the front. That is why I was going with that setup. When you do the flip kit how close to 4" does it lower the rear? Anyone here have pictures of Gen 3 Rangers with a 2/4 drop? Thank you for any help/guidance.

it will most likely sit low in the rear with 2" coils and a flip kit. my 93 sat low in the rear with beams and a flipkit. each truck is slightly different though.

id have the shackles ready in case you need them.
