Ranger Newbie

Hey guys,
My name is Violet. I just bought my first ranger a couple of days ago and I love it!!! It's a 2000 4 cyclinder 2.3L 5spd Manual. I don't know a whole lot about the truck but I'm definitely gonna learn as much as possible. It has a 3" body lift and it was on 35"s. Lol unfortunately it was scrubbin SUPER bad so I traded with a friend for 33"s. I would love to have the 35"s back on there but I gotta figure out how much more lift I need. Some people tell me a 4-6" suspension lift, some tell me a 2" suspension, and another person told me if I just make the tires sit out a little further it would work. The only problem I'm having right at the moment is that after we swapped out tires, all of the sudden the truck is whining REALLY bad. I don't know what it is though. Any suggestions?
THANKS!
Violet Michelle
