Lowering a fox?

Ll start buy saying I have a 2.3.. Also it's a notch.. So I'm I little stumped on what springs to buy?

I want to leave it a 2.3... Because gass milage, ect, ect... (Not gonna get into that)..

And obviously there's not a huge market out there for the 2.3's...

Thing I've heard...

94-04 V6 springs work well..

Cutting springs, but makes it very uncomfortable with the 4cly springs...

And buying GT/5.0 springs.. But the front end sits up a little higher..

Thoughts? Ideas? Opinions? Pictures?

This is what I wanna go for.. Example wise... I'm looking into a 99-04 V6 7.5 axel.. And the switch front spindles for 5lug.. And then paint and some interior work.. Rebuild a 2.3 on the side and make it a clean reliable DD.. The red on is mine..

I was thinking about getting the lowering springs from ebay that say they lower like. 2.5 inch for 94-04 v6 because it would be around 1.5-2 for my fox
