body lift complications!!!

i recently bought a body lift from a 1994 ranger. it was 50 bucks so i bought it and put it on my 1996 ranger.
i put the kit on fine until i got to the final steps so i ended up jerry riggin shroud mount and steering extension!!!
PROBLEMS: radiator shroud drop doesnt fit, (hoses in the way or drop bracket) steering extension doesnt fit (pieces dont fit together)!

i understand that in 1995, rangers went through a big change. and the PA body lift kit is different. So waht i am wondering if the radiator mounts changed or the steering shaft / coupling got changed. anyone know??

anyone have pics of a 1993-4 ranger steering linkage or radiator??

any advice would be great!!!

leave the rad in its original spot and just turn the plastic fan shroud upside down. Theres a thread in here somewhere.
