blocks are cheap but there are isues with axle wrap id go with springs and maybe a shackle flip

been doing some reading lately, and im wondering if the shackle flip will work on a ranger? most of the posts i've found are from people doing it on a fullsize, the ranger forums talk about using this to lower their truck. any ideas?:confused:

depends what way shackles are faceingif spring and shackle is above mount
shackle flip will work

naw, on a ranger the spring is below...so i guess maybe some belltech6400 shackles and make a bigger leafpack....should give me my 6 inches...hopefully..:ballsmack thanks[36]
