97 Ranger Front Lift

So im putting either spacers under my coils or stacking some washers, probably washers as i can adjust the height a little more and its cheaper, i was wondering if i raise it 2" i think i will need new camber bushings for an alignment, what size should i get? I read 1 post saying +/- 3 but id like some confirmation on that. Thanks!

Instead of using coil spacers like the ones here

Factory Coil Spacers

im probably just going to use washers, 4 washers should give me about 1" lift instead of the 2" that the spacers would give me.

you can lift the front 2 inches and still get it aligned anything over that you need drop brackets to keep the front end in spec

When I raised the front of my truck (same as yours) an additional 2 inches it cost me 200 dollars at a Good shop to install the RIGHT cam bushing and align the truck. You don't want to 'guess' what degree cam bushing to put in. If you put in the wrong size the caster will not be correct.
