Welcome!

A 3" body lift is cheap and easy.

welcome first andddd

are you looking for cheap with little labor? plenty of ways to lift. F150 front end springs. coil spacers. an all out body lift. add a leaf. bigger tires.

buy your shocks brand new. dont pull that crap. People on here love sensa-tracs, if you plan on really lifting more than an inch or two then get the 4x4 shocks. I did a generic brand bu they are lifetime warranty so I can replace them for free later on.

for coils off a full size.....idk lol....post a new thread about in under suspension tech, i imiagine any modern 150 spring would suffice

for leafs pull off a modern(ish) explorer. to be safe lets say 95+ (so they still have spring)
