where is the best (read cheapest) place to go for parts, for both the sport trac and ranger?
Basic hand tools from what I remember, it not too hard. It took me a full day to do mine, just take your time.

Buy the BL from like Summit or 4 wheel parts, usually the cheapest.

ya, take part of the body lift back off

LMFAO!

nah, you could always get a smaller shackle, something that's 2 inches shorter, will lower you about an inch... why not just crank your bars to bring the front up? i assume you want to level it right?

considering he doesnt have t-bars to crank that will be kind of difficult...dont lower the rear...lift the front!

but the front is the perfect height for not needing bigger tires...i saw these things at advance auto parts that went inbetween the front coils, and your turned two nuts and it spread the coils apart...good idea or bad?

those are not a good idea..either go with a lift coil in the front or a lift spindle or lower the rear by taking a leaf out of either side
