hi im new to the site bare with me im horrible at spelling and punctuation
ok anyways i have a 93 f150 xlt v8 5.0 and im looking to do a rear flip kit 7-10inches in the rear and 6-11 inches in the front but cant find anything this low. the lowest i can find however is 6 in rear and 4 in front and and am willing to cut fenderwells out if needed
links to sites please and thank you all for the help
First of all most guys on this site such as myself will just keep going if they see a poorly written post. Spelling and punctuation go a long way here. Take the time writing your posts.
Secondly, I believe the lowest you can go without bagging is a 6 inch flip. Even that will require a c-notch. If that isn't low enough I suggest you either leave it alone and enjoy what Ford gave you, or buy a car.

I sure know spelling and punctuation go a long way with me. It doesn't have to be perfect but without it posts can be very difficult to read.
As for your question. I don't know much about lowering ( I know more about lifting) but I would think that getting your truck that low is going to require a lot of fab work. You will probably have to cut a section from the frame and add a C-notch and tub the wheel wells and add a channel in the bed to clear the rear axle. I would think to get that low you'd be laying frame on the ground, or be close enough as to make it impractical to drive, so you'll need airbags to raise and lower the truck which means the rear leaf springs will have to go. The front will probably need custom beams, you might be better to change to a twin A-arm front end rather than the stock TTB, like I said I'm no expert. If you can't find a kit that low that's probably because they can't build that much drop into a kit.
Unless you really love your Ford ( I know what that's like) you might be better served to find a truck that has an A-arm independent front end. I think the '67-72 chevy C-10 pickups used A-arm front and coil spring rear so that might reduce the work involved but with that much drop you might have to rip it all out and build from scratch anyway.
I don't collect guns(or vehicles), I accumulate them.
Lowest you can go is 5.5" in the front static with drop i beams and custom made drop coils. Static for the rear you can go as low as you want. Belltech has a 6-7" flip kit with c notch and from there you can weld the flip saddles to the axle and run extra blocks. However the rear will be lower than the front and look fugly like no other.
