Want to drop her a little more..

Hey guys.. First post here, Looks like a great site!!..

I picked this truck up in September and with my banshee project finally coming to a end i thought I'd start messing with this truck a little.. Anyways it already has a flip kit in the rear and Dream beams up from for a 3-4 drop.. I don't like the way the 17's fit the wheel well and would like to get another inch or 2 drop t in front and maybe 1" more in the back.. For the rear i'll probably just get a 1" block but for the front I'm not quite sure what to do.. I'm not on a budget to airbag the thing, and i don't want to heat or cut the springs to the point where it effects the camber.. It rides really nice now and wears the tires pretty evenly.. So with that said what are my options..

Here is a pic of the truck.. Few things done to it like the drop, Clear corners, Diamond headlights, Carbon Fiber euro's, Some sort of fake Carbon fiber mirrors, Billet Grill, 17" wheels, COLD air intake, MSD coil Pack, Cat back exhaust and a goofy TV i'm about to rip off the dash ..
Nothing special just a clean little '93

Looks Nice I would get 2 inch drop coils for the front and flip the rear hangers, thats only like 10 bucks in bolts and it gives you a 2 inch drop.

You'll be sitting at 5/7 then. Clean little truck you got there.

Thanks guys.. Got the front lowered another couple inches Saturday.. Looks alot better.. Went and got new tires and got a 225 in the front and a 245 in the rear.. Looks a lot better now.. All went well except when i went for a alignment.. Apparently I need new bushings and wheel bearings before they can align it.. Ohhh well should look/ride better when it's all done..

Gumby what kinda quad you have?? I just got done building this one.. It's a 421 cheetah cub with a longrod stroker :D..
