F-150/Bronco Coil Spring on Ranger???

Since I will be doing a 302 swap into my tough truck build, I'm worried about using Ranger coil springs. Has anyone used F-150 or Bronco coil springs on a beamed Ranger? I'm thinking of doing so much am unsure of how they mount to the I-beams, I will be making my own coil buckets so that should not be too much of a problem.

They add lift with factory buckets and sometimes are out of specs for regular brackets. If you are going to make buckets then you can fix that. So yes they do fit. The ranger station has a write up in there tech section on it.

theres a company that will make any diameter, any rate, any weight spring you want. We have them make springs for us all the time for armored trucks, SUVs and cars we do. we add about 800 to 900 lbs to a vehicle depending on the armor level and glass thickness. We weigh the vehicle before the conversion then after and have springs made for that weight. they are not expensive either.

I can get the name of the company if you need it.
