Depends on where you set the hangers and if your running a shackle on it....also depends on your engine size. I know 2002FX4's REALLY settled on him...likely due to the shackle though. I ahve 6" allpros sittin' in a box at my buddys.

What do you mean 'if' your running a shackle? You have to run a shackle to allow for movement. I just mean what kind of lift is expected. I look for his thread. Thanks man!

I'm not positive on this....but a yoda lift leave nets 2" more on ranger....so 5" yoda leaf = 7" lift on ranger. I'm not positive, just a decent guess as well.

I gotta dig this sucka up cuz I really have become an advocate against the All-Pro's with our 4.0. Yes mine settled, but I strongly disagree about the shackle/angle being the culprit. Justin (84socal) can vouch for me on this as he has seen my rig twice with the leafs flatter each time.

If you're gonna decide to run Toyota leafs (up front), check into Trail-Gear's 5" HD leaf; they're made with an extra leaf so the spring rate can more realistically handle a heavier v6 or v8.
