The first thing we need to know is if you have torsion bar front suspension or coil springs. I only ask because you didn't specify and because the lift you are looking at is for a coil spring Ranger. I'm not familiar with Spring Tech, but I do know that for a 2wd Ranger a "knuckle lift" like the one you posted will lift your truck very easily. I know many of the members on here with 2wds use the same type of lift on their trucks. As for what brand, I don't really know. What I do know is a body lift is probably just as easy, or easier than a knuckle lift and cheaper, if you want to go that route.

I knew I forgot to add something lol, yes its the coil spring front end. Kinda dumb question but does a body lift add ground clearence at all?

No a body lift doesnt add ground clearance , but you could do a body lift and put a taller tire on and add ground clearance
