Icon6 2nd Gen mild lift

I kind of briefly mentioned this question in my introduction post, but Im just throwing it out there for everyone to see. I tried searching but I couldn't find much at all.

I've been looking around for 2"~ coils, or somewhere around there for my ranger because I don't really like the idea of drop brackets and I want to have my alignment and everything close to factory spec. I plan to add a 3" bodylift along with the 2"~ coils and replace the body bushings at the same time.

What is everyone running for this kind of setup? I found these tonight:
http://www.roughcountry.com/ford_83-..._leveling.html
and was wondering how they would be.

My main goal i guess you could say is to clear some 255/85/16s and still retain a decent ride. I dont mind cutting fenders, and i would pick up some prerunner fenders if there are some made. Gimme some thoughts guys

I would check out some Skyjacker 2" lift coils. They are about the same as the ones you posted the link to, but I highly prefer the Skyjacker coils. I've run both on my Gen II. You'll just need a decent camber bushing to get everything aligned.

ok sounds good, i'll have to check them out for sure. how do you find the ride quality, and what size tire are you running? any other suspension mods? where did you source your camber bushing?

I love the ride quality of Skyjacker coils, far better than the Rough Country. I'm running a Rough Country 4" lift kit with drop brackets and 6" Skyjacker coils. I also have a 2" body lift and am running 31" tires. Camber bushing can be found all over, Summit racing has them and ebay. I had a Hot Rod shop install the cam bushings because they needed to get it on an alignment rack to figure out what size bushing and they install the proper one.
