**would 4x4 ranger leaf spings give me a lift on a 4x2?**and......

could i get a set of (stock)4x4 ranger leaf springs and put them under my 4x2?... would that get more lift?
.
.
if not...
what makes the 4x4 rangers 3inches high than a 4x2 (93-98 i think)
.
.
could i get some front coil spacer
( the rubber bushing that you put in between each coil)
to raise the front end up and little bit? ... the old spring are well..old and the tire is staring to hit the inside of the fender ..if i hit regular bumps

The 4x4's have larger spacer blocks in the rear. You could always get larger blocks for the rear and an AAL in there for some lift.

For the front there's coil spacers, or you can get a spindle lift......longer spindles. As for the front suspension, check your shocks too....they may be going out on you.

most 2wd Rangers didn't come with any blocks pre '98.......they were spring on axle........

there is no difference in 2wd and 4wd springs.......

rear lifting options:

- Belltech 6400 Chevy 2wd lowering shackle (2"-3" of lift)
- Add-a-Leaf (2"-3" of lift)
- stock 4wd lift block (2" of lift)
- aftermarket lift springs (2" up to 6" of lift using a 4wd lift block)
- lifted lift block (~4" of lift)
- or any combo of the above....

I have a Westin safari bar on my Ranger. For what it does, it's not worth the $$$$ unless you find a deal on eBay or through a friend.

If you can get your hands on a WAAG bar, then that's worth the $$$.
