DJM 2/3 lowering

I just bought a DJM 2/3 lowering kit and I need a walkthrough or instruction on how to put it on. I have a 2005 ford ranger xlt 2wd. I would really appreciate someone's help with this. Thanks.

It didn't come with instructions? What all comes with that kit? Just coils for the front and flip kit for the rear?

put the truck up on jack stands.
Take the wheels off.
for the front...
Disconnect the shocks, tie rods, sway bar end links, lower ball joints.
Get a ball joint puller and pop the lower joint out.
Jack up the lower arm to get the spindle out of the way then SLOWLY lower the arm to get the spring out.
Do the opposite to get the spring back in.
For the rear....
make sure the leaf springs are at full droop
disconnect the shocks
Loosen the spring plates, the bolts that holds the leaf springs on, and the shackle in the back both top and bottom.
Get the springs out and put the "U" plate on the top of the springs and re connect everything.
Put the longer shackles in place of the stock ones.

I tried to post a picture up of the kit but it might not have worked, Im new to the site. The kit came with instructions but I cant make sense of them that much but it has the 2 springs, bump stops, rear shackles, spring plates, and axle locators, Its the flip kit. Also it says on the instructions that I will have to have new shocks.

Do you have to have new shocks with these kits?

No you can use stock shock, but I'd recommend drop shocks
