Options To Go Lower...

I have already flipped my rear hangers and that effectively leveled out my Ranger. But i am now interested in taking it a few inches lower, 2-3 inches.

My plan is just to get some 2" drop springs, probably DJM, and leave the rest of it the same. Don't think i will need new shocks or have any issues with camber but i could be wrong.

I have been doing some research and figure that i can:
1. buy a flip kit, and unflip my rear hangers for about 2-3 inches of drop, seems like the most common method, but seems like more work than...
2. buy 2" lift shackles and combined with my flipped hangers get another 2" of drop, I am not sure about this idea though because i haven't seen anyone else do it
3. remove a leaf and see what that does for me, not really a fan of this idea but it is a possibility

Which of these ideas would be the best way to go? would i need to buy new shocks, any suggestions on which ones? should i have any issues with angles or camber?

Any and all input is appreciated!
