Lowering a 1994 4x4 questions

Hey guys im new to the forum here i have had a my ranger now for a few years now. It is a 1994 4x4 and i am looking to lower it 2-3 inches. In front it has springs and a seperate shock and in the back jsut standard shocks. My friend said that i might be able to lower it with lowering springs and new shocks in the front, and then with drop blocks in the rear along with new shocks as well. Does this sound right...or can someone steer me in the right directions Thanks guys

Jim

Not to sure on 4x4's esp with ibeams but prob can cut the coils and for the back flip the rear hangers for 2 inches..

blocks wont work unless you use a flipkit putting the axle on top of the leafs because if you just added blocks it will lift you..

You can't lower the TTB's without causing serious damage to the axle. When you lower it, it will put the center section closer to the crossmember and axle pivot brackets.

If you want to lower something, sell your 4wd Ranger and get a 2wd Ranger.

There is NO lowering spring for your truck; did you not read what I posted above?

There is NO room to lower a TTB Ranger without tearing into the front diff.

put your truck up on craigslist for trade and just tell people you want a 2wd ranger. You might be lucky enough to find someone who has a newer ranger that you like.
