Need help with removing lift kit and lowering it

I Have a 2004 ford ranger edge, with 3.0l v6, 2wd.
I would like to put a 3/5 drop on my ranger, and im not sure what all i need for the lowering? and the other problem i have is it has a lift kit, it has 2 inch blocks in the back which i know how to remove. but the front is im not sure what is actually making it lifted? and what to do to remove whatever is there.

If anyone could help me i would greatly appreciate it

Your edge is on a 4x4 frame/suspension. There is no real proper way to lower it. There are short cuts, but can cause premature wear and tear on it. The rear can be dropped easily, but the only safe way to drop the front is to bag it which costs a good bit of money. You can lower it down a hair without anything major going wrong, but you wont see a safe drop on it.

There is no actual lift kit. It's all in the design of the suspension. There is no good way of lowered a ranger with tbars. The only way to do it is costly. You'd be better off finding someone to trade or sell that one and get an xlt ranger that's coil sprung.
