this is the lowest ive found
89-97 FORD RANGER 3-4' DJM Lowering Drop Kit 96 95 94: eBay Motors (item 360313580897 end time Nov-24-10 08:46:07 PST)
hope that helps

i would just cut the front coil springs and get blocks for the rear at autozone you could do it for like 50$ but you wouldnt be able to do aliment so it depends on how much you drive the truck

Hey Leo, those DJM dream beams are solid. That is what I installed on my 93, with 2 inch splash coils, never had any issues. Hanger and shackle the rear for a 4 inch slammer.

depends on if you do the work or have somebody do it for you.
if you have a welder and are halfway good at it you can do it

here is a site that has some bolt / weld in ones
Ford C-Notch Kits

here is another one that bolts in
