There are lots of companies out there. Stillen, SLP, DGmotorsports, Razzi, erubini(sp), go industries, thats just to name a few off the top of my head. Me, I'm thinking of getting the slp kit for my splash, if they make them for the flareside. hope this helps.

well i can tell you that 3/4 is not the lowest you can make it.

You can combine beams and springs up front for at least 5 inches.

Out back you can combine lowering leaf springs and blocks for 6. Though, i would suggest a C-notch if you do 6 in the back.

Check out http://www.rangerpowersports.com . Many of the members are running 5/6 drop, but don't expect a very good ride. Next step would be adjustable suspension.

Don't buy a ricey body kit just because you want to be lower. That's the ultimate ricer mentality and I know you're not that type of person.

Belltech makes a 5" and 5.5" kit for your year ranger. Its a little on the expensive side though.

I don't know what the difference would be between the ex cab and the regular cab suspensions. I had a friend who had the 5/5.5 drop on his 93 regular cab and everything went on fine as far as i know.

There is no difference in suspension.

If you already have a 3/4 then you probably already are running I beams all you have to do is get springs and a bigger block I had a 5/6 on my old 93"ranger. But I ran 1" springs and it wasent low enough so i got them heated another inch. But you will need a c-notch or it will ride like sh#t.

Just please dont heat your springs. when you do that it weakens the metal and there a chance that sometime down the road they will snap. If you must do something to alter the springs you have, cut them. the best choice of course would be to purchase the right springs though.

Not to mention that they change the spring rate and make your truck bounce up and down like all hell when going over every bump.

my girlfriends hondas springs were heated before she bought it now the control arm rubs against the spring
