SPRINGS IN FRONT, LEAFS IN BACK ?

probly get shocks from a f150 or similar, and for that fact, leafs too. should give you a few inches of lift, but will be a stiff ride :(

ya, since the f150 springs are longer because of the extra weight. should be good for a couple inches of lift. i think the rear leafs would also add a little, but they are probly longer/wider then ranger ones.

cheap and easy rear lift is coilover shocks that are two inches taller than stock coilovers as for the front i would suggest f-100 coils do to it being a ranger but you will have to drop the radius arm bracket two inches and get ball joint adjusters to compensate for camber and you might have to cut a bit out of the top of the coils go with front shocks from a full size bronco or f-100 or 150 and that will be about 4" of hight [31]

you can put a dana 35 out of an explorer if you dont already have it the n put in 2 inch lift coils in the front before you have to run drop brackets and shit, then for the back you can use explorer leafs i was told and this will give you lift in the rear
