    I don't think the 2wd mini truck springs will fit on a 4x4. IIRC, the leaf springs are on top of the axle.

    Not sure if this will work, but I guess you can try and cut off the 1st coil on your stock coils, not sure if anyone has tried that though. FWIW, it's easier to lift a 2wd mini than it is to lower a 4x4. Try asking the guys over at customtaos.com, but be prepared to get a little flaming.
