probably a stupid question but I want to change from a 5 inch lift to a 3 or 4 inch lift if I do this will I have to change my castor angle on my front arms? Or will my drop boxes to suit a 5 inch lift still be ok? And also my panhard rods and everything will have to be adjusted aswell won't they? Cheers guys

I would say it should be fine so I would be buying the new coils/shocks first and give a good test drive. If it feels like its wandering you should look at getting drop boxes to suit 3-4 inch lift if its really bad.

You will be able to sell the old gear to recoup some of the cost.

Yes your panhards and draglink will need adjusting

drop boxes will be fine. although at 3-4" you could get way with castor bushes and no drop boxes. i would use a flexi/progressive 3-4" spring and keep the 5" shock (or longer) for good travel with a lower ride. in which case i would keep the boxes. however if they weren't already there then i would just use 3 degree bushes.. each to there own tho.
