Leaf Spring lift ?

The rear leaf spring in the rangers have been the same forever right ? So How about the skyjacker lift springs they made as part of the TTB lift kit. Wouldn't they fit on my 03 ? They are cheaper then deavers and they come in 4 and 6 inch lift sizes.

Summit has the 4 inch ones for $180 each and the 6 inch ones for $200 each.

DBR sells the deavers for $500 a pair the skyjackers springs are a little cheaper and you are getting more lift out of them.

I wasn't sure if you meant the chevy springs or the skyjackers

Summit has the skyjacker 4 inch ones for $180 each and the 6 inch ones for $200 each.

The chevy leaf springs are technically better cause they're made for a bigger vehicle.

Obviously they'd fit outs, since we've all had the same rearened since 93.

so you get like 2-3 inches of lift out of a stock Chevy spring then you got a pro comp Chevy 3" lift spring ? Did I get that right ?

That's freaking awesome if it works like that. What did they cost you ?
