couple 2nd gen drop ?s

ok so im ready to lose my mind with the height of this truck pulled up next to a 4x4 S10 and i was the same height it was embarrassing..

if i flip the shackles in the rear will it drop the ass end? and how much?
i have 2" drop shackles but the stock ones are upside down so they would be lift shackles
i also have 3" blocks but really dont want to use them.

looking for... idk 5-6"?

and for the front, does anybody make drop coils at all? the less i have to end up cutting the better.
i cut the coils on my buddys 98, dropped it 4"s and it rides fine not bouncy so i can do that, just dont want to cut too much if i dont have to. and i dont want the thing to camber crazy i dislike uneven tire wear it bothers me

Sporttruckdirect.com had some springs... Cant remember who by though. 93daksport flipped his rears and said he got like 4"? Iirc. He cut his springs in the frt. Find some spindles somewhere, bc if you are going to drop 4-5" in the frt, idk man, id feel better with spindles for 2" then cut springs for the other 2". Its driving me crazy, i wanna get another 1-2" in the front and 2-3" in the rear myself after parking next to another gen2 the other day and realizing im not really all that low.

with about 4 inch of drop in the front I have some rubbing on the inner fenders in the front so they would probably have to go to do much more and in the back in about 3/4" away from the frame so a notch would probably be the way to go there too
