which drop for front?

hey guys, i need to lower front on my s10, after i've salvaged it from junk yard i replaced all damaged front suspension components and now front is higher, but i think its due to having stock coil springs, i thought about putting in lowering springs, but not sure what inch drop 1", 2" or 3"?? I think about 2" or 3" would be fine, right guys? heres attached pic how it looks like, but i am not sure if u can see difference from back vs front, but in person u can see big difference in heigh. Almost like i had V8 in it and now i put in I4 and front is just sitting up. Let me know guys what should I do, drop it 2", 3" or do something else, also i am on limited budget so i just decided to get lowering springs for now. thanks.

wow, that does sit high...the flat rear tire doesnt help either...and as much as I'm not a big fan of converting trucks from utility duty, I think a 3" drop is your choice...that or raise the rear.

I like the look of a real low truck. I would go with the 3" and even a 1" block in the rear. But then I would also go with a 2" drop spindle later on along with some more drop on the rear, but that's when the money comes. I'm going to be doing a 5/6 drop on my S10 after Christmas (when I get some money).
