94' Ranger 4X4 LIFT! HELP PLEASE!!!1

I have a 94' Ranger 4X4, and i wanted to put bigger tires on it in not too long. My front end is naturally a little lower than my rear end. I dont know if this is because of the springs having 173,000 miles or it just sits that way.I want to do a little lift in the front to fit 33's. Anyone recommend what type of lift to do?
'll be posting pictures soon of the way it sits

well your truck is sagging in the front because the springs but they all have some rake to them. just because of the year you have i would look for a 4 in skyjacker kit. you should clear 33's np then.

Definitely 4" suspension lift. I have a 4" Rough Country on my 92' with 30's and definitely a lot more room for tire.

I have a Skyjacker 6" Class II system that has been on my 97 Splash since 1999. I have ordered but not yet installed a James Duff 5.5-6" Stage 3 for my truck to replace my skyjacker out. I will say the JD stuff seems beefier overall. The coil springs are a variable rate versus single rate spring. The leaf Springs have 7 leaves in them. Over all from the appreance of the stuff I will say I am impressed. I am in no way saying the Skyjacker is a bad kit, it has served me very well for over 12 years. The kit has about 50K miles on it and nothing has ever broken. My 97 wil clear 35X12.5-15s if I leave the sway bars connected to limit wheel travel.

Y'all can order bigger coils.
I've got expo leafs, bigger coils and shocks. and i got 32's in mine right now. might be able to clear 33's, but they would probably rub at lock. Also look for some spring rubbers. (coil spacers)
