for the 2" in the front i would recommend lowering springs or you could use drop spindles, springs are less expensive but both get the job done
for the 3" in the rear you can get a leaf spring shackel kit

if you do a 'flip kit'- put the leaf springs under the axle, it usually drops the rear from 4" to 6"

ill look for some links for ya

i would stick with the drop spindles, and if you want more drop use slighly drop springs, and the shackle kit for the rear.

i am in the prosess of droping a chevy S10, it's alot easyer cause the diff is over the spring in the rear. and we are useing spindles in the front.
