    Figuring Lowering Coil replacement size

    Hello,
    I am trying to figure what coils and shocks I will need to replace my existing coils and shocks on front suspension. Existing coils were heated to lower about 10years ago and are pretty shot. I am just not sure what size lowering coils I will need to replace my existing coils and keep close to the same ride height. Only 1 ring on the existing coils were heated so I am guessing that would be close to a 2" lowering coil? Any advice would be appreciated. For a 91 Mitsubishi Mighty Max standard cab 2.4l.

    for the front shocks you can use 2wd s10 or 84-95 2wd toyota truck shocks
    here some shocks for sale http://www.thesuspensionsource.com/b...-2-drop-10007/ for the toyota shocks you will have to cut off the dust shield,


    you can use these for the rear shocks

    The only drop springs for our trucks I know of are made by belltech.

    Yeah I only found Belltech also. But I was trying to figure what drop I needed to keep close to current ride height. Front coils were heated with a torch so I dont know the actual drop I have. I think the rear has 3-4" drop blocks with a one leaf taken out. It was done about 10 years ago so its hard to remember. Theres got to be some sort of measurement point

    That looks about a 2-2.5" drop which is what most coils give. Aim(airbagit.com/chassis tech) used to make them for our trucks, that's what I used to run.
