1993 ranger really cheap lift

I have a 1993 ranger splash 4.0L Im wanting to run 33x10.50 tires at one point but dont exactly have tons of money for a lift. I was thinking of running super cab coils and coil spacers will that provide enough lift in the front? Im worried about it throwing the alignment way out on the front end though?

From reading is it possible to gain lift by swapping explorer coils in?

no if you had a 4 cylinder you would gain an inch but with the 4.0 there will be no difference but you can get 1.5 to 2inches lift from swapping the rear leaf springs in

well I would consider leveling coils with spacers but then it would most likely def throw the front end out of alignment

anything over 2inches lift will require drop brackets for the front end in order for it to be aligned

Same here. I actually ran the 33x12.50's without the body lift for about a week. It rubbed on every bump and turn.
