Default Lowering a 97 4x4 Questions

Yes I know this has been discussed before but i just want to make sure I got all the info right lol

The Truck is a 97 4x4 4 door and I was thinking about dropping it 3 inches or more if possible in the front and 3 or 4 in the rear

On the Front My T-bars are cranked up all the way right now, and it sits at about stock height
So if i would just take out the bolts would that get me 3 inches? or do i have to get new shorter shocks?

On the rear i was just planing on doing 3 or 4 inch blocks, So where can you buy new longer U-bolts at? and would this throw off the angle of the drive shaft or anything?? And i would just cut the bump stop in half?

Also would I be able to use my stock tires and rims for a while, Im sure theyll probably rub on bumps tho lol

Sorry Im a noob at all of this lol
