lowering 99 ranger

i want to lower my 99 2wd ranger. i have looked around on the forum and i think i have a general plan on what i want... im thinking on flipping my shackles to lower the rear two inches and to cut one coil on each front spring to lower my front end two inches... im just posting this to make sure this all seems right... and if anybody has any advice or helpful hints... thanks in advance

Cutting coils is dangerous and stupid. Plus ride quality will be affected

DJM makes a 2/3 kit. Don't cut coils, drop your truck right the first time
