Explorer leafs

I searched but couldn't find the answer I was looking for. If I get explorer leafs and took out my stock block would my 05 ranger be the same height? Also what are the advantages to having explorer leafs?

Should. I beleive the expo leafs add 2.5" of height on a Ranger....and your block is 2.5" tall....so...should be same height as stock.



It's something i've considered doing to ditch my block as well.....but I'm having a hard hard time finding a lower mile (75k or lower) wrecked Expo at the U-pull-it yards.

I think spring rates are different...but that's about it from what I've read.

If you run the expo leaf and the factory block you acheive about 2 inchs lift...the same as the chevy shackles....We just did it to a 94 ranger.
