The rear already has 2'' blocks. Are you just wanting to level the truck or add 2'' all way around ? To level it you can either buy coils or coil spacers. If you want to go all way around just buy a 2'' body lift. Another thing to look at is what size tires are you wanting run ? My 93 setup was 3''BL with 2'' coil spacers and ran 33x12.50's.

3"BL + 2'' Coil Spacers

Did your tires pinch in when you put the coil spacers on? If they did how did you fix it?

and yes you will get some mad camber but any alignment shop can fix it with some alignment cams

When I put my coils in I got fully adjustable cams that the shop put in for me when I got it aligned, that was incase I ever got different coils for more lift etc..

And I've been running the stock shocks on my leveling coils for probably 3 years now, not that it's a great idea but I haven't had an issue... yet

I agree with coils over coil spacers but I never had any problems with mine. My brother has had his on 2 different rangers now and no probs. Yes the camber will be off but like Redneck said an alignment shop can fix it. I didn't have stock shocks but they were the same length as stock ones and never had any probs. I think now as much as you would pay for just the spacers you can prolly get coils around same price. Miss having that setup over these T-Bars.

really dumb thing to do. i actually had a 4x4 length shock on the front for a while of mine and broke it in 2 pieces the piston came right out and that was for only like 3 months surprised your still getting away with it..

I now have 2" longer skyjacker hydros

Yours does not have a factory lift. The only STX Rangers that had the factory "HighRider" lift was the '88-'89 Ranger STX's.

Run 2" leveling coils like Stoney said. You will need new shocks to go with that and an alignment.

Just an FYI, any lift over 2" and you will need new axle drop brackets to get proper alignment.
