93 leaf springs in a 98?

i just bought a 98 ranger xlt 4 door 2wd flairside ranger the other day. the drivers side rear leaf is sagging a little bit. i also have a 93 ranger xlt ext cab 2wd that decided that it wanted to eat a F-150.

my question is will the leafs on my 93 fit on my 98?

Yes. I took leaf springs off of a 93 explorer for my 98 ranger (mazda) and they fit perfectly other than flipping the center pin. The ranger springs will be exactly the same.

yes they will work as long as its the same spring code, look at the number of leafs in the 93 then look at the 98.

they will work regardless of the spring code.....any ranger leaf spring from '93+ will interchange with no questions asked....they are the same length and same width....

there isn't a "spacer" for the front of your truck.....if you have a "sport" 2WD then you can crank on the torsion bars, but if not then you can only put on a spindle lift...

yeah but some sit higher then others, if you have one leaf pack with 2 and one with 3 or even 4 i think it would sit kinda funny.
