i have a 96 sport 4x4 that i want to lower at least 4in in the front and rear. i heard you cant do more than 2in for the 4x4.

going to have blocks in the back n torsion twist in the front with lower shocks n bumpers.

also the front drive shaft for the 4x4 is taken out.

anyone tell me if i can make it happen?

I had to hack the sh*t out of the bumpstops... I ran regular Monroe shocks, but I think I'm going to end up popping on Rancho RS5000's. My buddy had them on his dropped Ranger and they ran pretty smooth.



TallZac ---- Yeah, the wheels came off a 98 Mustang GT. I ran 235/55/17's off of a G35 sedan, but to get the correct speed on the speedometer(I am currently 5mph off), you should run somewhere around a 235/65/17. Thanks for the compliment as well! I worked pretty hard to get it this far and I have an absolute ton of plans going into the future.

Sorry so late on my responses, I've been a little preoccupied with life and it's contents. I manage 6 overgrown 8 year olds in 40 year old bodies....
