I have a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT

I was looking to drop it, I was thinking about going with a “DJM Suspension”
Kit, and probably using there shocks.
The truck is currently completely stock with no modifications.

Any suggestions???

DJM is very popular among lowered Rangers. Their shocks are kind of mediocre, but they'll work well enough.

Change out the cinch bolts for the camber/caster bushing to grade 8. The ones they provide stripped out easily.

Are you looking at beams and springs, or just beams? If you are just doing drop beams in front, stock shocks should still work.

You will most likely wear tires in the front regardless with a bigger droplike that. The curse of I beams

Line bed with painters plastic

Fill with water

This will lower the back. Don't know what to tell you about the front.

Add koi for mobile koi pond.

Alternatively fill with sand for more extreme drop and to have mobile zen garden. Serenity on the go.
