Do I need studd extenders for my shocks with 2"?

I have a 93 ranger and am looking at a 2" spacer kit. Do I need the studd extenders as well? I'm not an extreme 4wheeler, but more a trail guy. Thanks

The spacers are in the budget right now thats why I'm asking. I can get them for $30. I just need to buy the shock extenders that match them.

get new shocks, not shock extenders.....

the extender you are thinking about is a coil spring retaining bolt extender, not a shock extender.....

this whole thread is just wrong.

David be quiet for a min and read what we are telling you.

the "extender" that comes with the coil spacer is for the bolt that goes through the I-beam because the coil puck sits on the i-beam and makes the bolt to short.

just as Mark said one of the few things i 100% agree with him on NEVER NEVER run a bolt extender ever. they are junk.

stop with the crap stuff save your money and get coils and skyjacker 2" longer shocks. install those and then go for the alignment. which you will need alignment cams

It sounds right as far as safety goes. I'll look into the springs.

Thanks guys and thanks for the headsup.
