Lowering the rear end

I recently purchased A 2002 ranger its 2wd and it has some sort of lift on it, I think its the fabteck one but im not sure. I was wondering how I would go about lowering the back end 1"-2" beacuse it seems like its higher than the front. Also I dont have too much experience with trucks so sorry in advance for the stupid question.

look under there and see whats used for liftin the back. blocks between the axle and leaf springs probly. if it is a block bigger than 2 inches, you can put a 2" one in there. if its a 2 inch block, take it out.

easiest way is to put bags of concrete in the bed.. but if it has a block 2" take it out.. 4" find someone who wants a lift and trade them for factory block if they have it

hanger flip is for lowered guys if you want to leave the truck lifted i wouldnt do it.. post some pics of the truck, your truck will eather have block to lift it but you said you dont see one or and Add a Leaf pack OR a shackel lift.. we need to figure out what one you have try and post a pic of the rear suspension and we can give you the right advice to correct the problem..
