i got a 94 explorer and i have a 4 inch lift from a ranger...i am told the front is all the same but the rear is tottaly different....so i am wondering what i should do to get the rear to match the front....i was thinking of doing other a axl over or shackels...i am also going to put the f150 spacers under the front springs so it will be about 5-5.5 inches in the front.....any ideas would be great...thanks..

Just do a spring over and that should net you the 5.5 inches you will need ![cheers]

YOU'RE FINE WITH SPACERS USED THEM FOR YEARS ON A RANGER SPOA IN THE REAR IS CHEAP AND EASY. I SOLD MY 4" LIFT TO A BUDDY WITH MY OLD 1.5" SPACER AND FLIPPED THE REAR AXLE IT SITS PERFECT

GET ABBY SPRING TO MAKE YOU NEW PERCHES ITS WAY CHEAPER THAN A FLIP KIT.

Ya spacers in the rear is one thing, the front is another, nevermind the fact it's illegal. Read: You get VI'd your screwed

It's not quite the same,these are a factory piece that are legal.they are sold as a leveling kit from the dealer.

Spacers are fine in coil spring suspension. A no no for front leaf.

trucks lifted now..thanks for the help...the spoa was perfect made the truck sit just right and was way too easy...it took 2 hours to do the complete spoa...and the ranger lift and f150 spacers worked great....i got my 33 on now and it looks great...biggest complaint was the steel braded brake lines from nsor..they were a crappy fit not too happy for 180 bucks but oh well its done now.....

no these were procomp...the one front line was good but the other had some big ass brass fitting with a extra hole in it that they just had a plug in and i cant take it off cause the hose is too short then..looks dumb...and the rear was a way differnet lowere fiting so i had to re mold the brake lines and find a new bolt and re make the ebrake cable holder....i was not verry impressed for the money...
