2001 edge sas

Hi im new to doing swaps and rangers. I was out on some trails last weekend and thought about lifting my truck. Easiest and cheapest way from what i read best way is sas swap. What would be easier/money efficient
Going with a spring set up or leafs
Any ideas on parts to use out of what other cars thanks

I wouldn't say it's the easiest or cheapest way, but it will definitely give you more capability off road than other options.

It all depends on what you're trying to do with your truck. I personally have never done a SAS, but I've read up on it a good bit and seen a lot of trucks on here with SAS over the years. Leaf springs are typically easier to set up, but won't give you as much travel or articulation. There's a wealth of info on here (and other Ranger sites) in the form of build threads. Before you buy the first thing, read, read, and read some more lol

All depends what axle you want to use as to which way will be easier to set up.

Once you decide on an axle, the rest falls into place as to which way to go
