ok, because i have never seen that particular "spacer". . i was actually thinking about replacing the coils with 1.5" leveling coils and maybe adding a 2" coil spacer UNDERNEATH the coil. do you think i would have any alignment issues?

you cant run the coils and spacers without the drop brackets for the beams.

so what your saying is that you can run 4" lift coils without the drop brackets?

i thought you could only run 3" coils on the stock brackets and that was pushing it.

yeah, stacking blocks is scary.

the stock ranger leafs can be beefed up with an add a leaf and shackles.
then if you want you can take out the stock 2" block and put in a 3" block.

stacking blocks are fine if your using a factory block with and ear on it to keep it located in between the ubolts. two normal blocks is not recommended.
