Welcome, don't forget to fill out your UserCP and stop by the newbie section for the official welcome.

As for your question, I checked out groundforce and Godfathercustoms; all I can find for that year is rear drop shackles; which means there's no kits, sorry. Your best bet is to find a local suspension shop that can do a custom kit for you. If you're looking to go down 4/6 you'll be looking at a flip kit, C-notch, shackles, drop shocks.

Flip kit, c notch, lowered shocks, shorter springs up front and look for some lowered control arms or spindles to get it to 4".

I can't help you on a 4/6 drop, but I did a 2/4 drop. I checked around and these guys had the best prices on Belltech lowering parts: http://www.stillen.com/
