4x4 springs on a 2wd?

I have a 92 Ranger 2wd that I would like to give a little more lift to clear some larger tires. Right now the springs are all factory 2wd, however I can get 92 Ranger 4x4 springs for free, but don't know if they will do anything for my ride height or if they will even fit.

Anybody out there know if this swap will work?

I had the same question also. One would think that a 4x4, which has factory 2" blocks on the rear axle, would compensate with longer springs up front... But that's just me thinking aloud.

I went the way of adding the F-150 spring perches to my 4x2 front springs to lift it almost a couple inches on my '90 SuperCab....
