$80... wow... i didnt realize they were that cheap. thx man... ill try gettin a hold of a jc whitney.
EDIT*- what exactly are the components of leveling kits. is it just a coil spacer?.. or is there more in them than that? also what are the long term effects of a leveling kit?

the kit has the pucks that go under the coil spring. they dont have the kit on there website for some reason but it is in the magazine. not sure of the affects of leveling if there are any

it may be a typo on jc whitneys part, i just went and looked at the mag again and it does say 97 - 02 ranger 2wd. it gives the truck 1.5 inches of lift
