rear lowering question

Hey guys. I have a 96 ex cab ranger xlt. I just cut the coils and flipped the rear hangers, but now the back end is just a little higher than I would like it to be. What are my options for lowering just like another inch or two. I don't want flip the axle really. Any ideas?

whats wrong with a flipkit? gives you a factory ride and payload and is the easiest You could go with a flipkit and lifting shackles for a 3 inch drop.

You can lower it another inch by removing the center leaf on the spring pack.

if you "dont want to do that really" then buy lift shackles, it will lower your truck by 2 inches or more, depending on what lift shackles you buy.

(the reason for lift shackles and not lowering is because you flipped the hangers out back)
