if u run a block in the rear anything higher then 3inches.. i would recommend u use traction bars.. also dont double stack.. asking for disaster.. if u gunna do the front ur prolly gunna wanna use spindles, unless u have coils in the front.. use 2in coil spacers

exactly- do not stack blocks! In the past I bought a K5 Blazer, and the previous owner stacked two 1" blocks for the rear. The first thing I did.... since they were steel, was weld them together.

Ok im planning on doing the same thing to my 2004 2wd, get http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku for rears (it says chevy but it raises our trucks) and either http://sporttrucksuspension.com/rangerlift.htm spindles or coils, if you go coils you will need new shocks, you will probably want new shocks anyway for front and rear.... You dont have to, but it will help give you flexing room.

for the front the still offer spindles for coil trucks no different, i would get those. then eather add a leaf or shackels for rear, blocks are LAST resort, because they cause wheel hop

with the coils, you will need new upper control arms...so the spindles are cheaper...however i am selling lift coils, new upper arms and shocks for your model truck...but if you would rather get the spindles check out:

for the 2wd Rangers who want some front end lift- Sprindles are the best option. why? becuase all the suspension angles stay the same, all you're doing is lowering the point at which the wheel is placed, thus raising the truck.
