So my DD is a 99 ext cab 3.slow and was thinking about a 4/5 drop. Anything special I should know about or get? Are any fitment issues with a 18x9 on all corners?

I'm a Euro car guy at heart, so I picked up these BMW 17x8 et20 Style 5s(BBS RC090) from a buddy recently. The plan is to refinish them with brushed lips, gold faces, and chrome bolts, then get some 20mm 5x120 Adaptec adapters(for zero offset) from another friend and drop the truck with an Explorer 8.8 axle over the leaf and DJM control arms and front springs. I'd also like to find the appropriate length Bilstein shocks for proper ride quality.

Changed plans for now. Full DJM 4/5 drop kit with 18x8 et44 2012 Mustang wheels. 32mm(1.25") spacers put the final offset at 12mm. The tires are 225/50r18 Yokohama YK740 GTX. I still plan on picking up an 8.8 this summer.

Guess I'll post my junk.

1992 Ranger obviously 3.0, 7.5 welded, shackle flip, drop coils and bad body. It's going spring under soon and I am rebuilding a 302 and an 8.8 for it for winter work.

First time dropping a truck since i was 17.
97 ford ranger 2.3 m/t extra cab. 176k when i picked it up about a month ago. Definitely old man owned/driven.
Picked it up for about 2.5k
Replaced the clutch rear main and slave assembly.
Aluminum 1 piece driveshaft.
Explorer rear diff 8.8 with 4.10 gears LSD and disc brakes.
This setup had an extra fat overload leaf netting me about 5in rear drop.
Please excuse the tiny front wheels lol.
