Heres all my lift parts

heres the things i have and the things i am considering ordering

right now i have:

3.5" Spindles
AAL
Shackles

what to Order:

Bilstein 5100 Series

now if i want to go higher can i use the 6" skyjacker coils and a block in the rear since mines an XL 2wd that doesnt come with one.

if i get coils do i need upper arms to align them or can i get away with stock arms and just get an alignment, which is free for me!

No you cannot use the 6" skyjacker coils on an 07. That is for the 93-97 years with a different suspension. The most lift you can get from coils on your a-arm ranger is 3" but you will need new upper arms to correct the balljoint angle. People have been able to just put in 2" lift coils and still align it, however, you will go through balljoints incredibly fast.

Also, with just the spindle lift you dont need new shocks for the front. You will need new ones for the rear. If you get a coil lift you will need new shocks for the front (only for the amount the coils lift, not the spindles). If you get the coil lift and want 5100s, I can give you the part number that will work.

that helps a lot. so i can do stock shocks in the front but i DO need to replace the ones in the rear. if i decide to go the longer springs i will have to replace c-arms and the front shocks so the ball joints will not wear faster then stock. is there a part number for the c-arms your talking about?

Fabtech makes arms as well as doestch (sp?) and springtech. Not sure on the part numbers, someone can probably post a link for you.

hmm really? do u still have the same travel, id imagine that would limit the amount of flex u have though.

i just dont want to put stress on other components making them wear out faster then stock. what else should i look into? or will spindles, AAL, and shackles be fine. id rather be on the safe side :)

i've gone of roading quite a bit since i lifted it and haven't seemed to have any trouble. i'm sure it will limit the travel but i haven't noticed it. i'm not really one to stop and check my flex, i just drive haha. but with spindles, AAL, and shackle you should be good to go. you could get some new shocks to be safe and have a nicer ride but i don't think it's quite necessary
