I'm new to the forums this is my first thread so dont yell if I did something wrong. I have a lot of questions. I want to lower it three or four inches. If you could give me a link or give me a list of parts and how to go about doing this. Any help would be appreciated. Btw it's a 93 4x4 limited ex 4door

The max you can lower a first gen 4x4 is about 2 inches. The TTB in the front doesn't allow more than that if you still want enough suspension travel for driving on the road.

You can get 2" drop coils for the front, and either use 2" lowering blocks in the rear, or use the leaf springs from a 2 door Sport, or have the stock springs de-arched to match the drop on the front.

I heard that ranger drop coils work for the front end. Will the diff housing hit the ground on bumps or is 2 inches not low enough. Are leafs easier than blocks. If not I don't know where I can get a hold of lowering blocks. Also do you know of any fulll body kit
