01 2WD XLT suspension confusion... shouldn't I have torsion bars?

I was swapping new tires on today for winter use, and noticed that I have a coil front suspension in my 2WD XLT 4banger....I was led to believe by my manual, and from talk on here that I was supposed to have torsion bars.

Is this normal?

reason I ask is I ordered some KYB monomax shocks last night going by thier application chart for 2WD Rangers, and now i wonder if i got the right shocks.
(allright, skip the shock thing, went and checked shock is same 2wd/4wd except EDGE, thx)

any help would be appreciated.

Only Edge's and 4x4s have torsion bars. 2wd XLTs have coil spring suspensions.

u not a moron. just illinformed.

On a additional note:

ALL EDGES/SPORTS......doesn't madder if it's 2wd or 4x4.....if it's an edge or sport, it'll have torsion bars. Add Trailheads too. ALL 98+ 4x4s are torsion bars.

XL, XLT 2wd are coil sprung.
