94 explorer lift

Just wondering if I can use f-150 springs under the front end. It's got a 6inch suspension lift and a two inch body. Will they fit/??

i would imagine they might be of a stiffer spring rate though

Explorer and ranger coils are way overrated to begin with they could be in a f150 and support a small block just fine , f150 coils are even worse , try some nice flexy jeep xj coils , theres some info on www.therangerstation.com about the swap , and if your running ttb you will want to keep it at a 4" lift unless you want to buy bigger drop brackets to keep the axle beams in line properly

ranger and exploder coils are a stiffer spring rate to begin with because of the leverage of the ttb arms

jeep coils or even early bronco progressive coils would be a better choice
