Those are just Leveling Blocks, The go ontop of your shocks if I'm not mistaken in your shockboots. In the rear, with that truck it doesn't really matter. Mike, a Twin I Beam Ranger is one of the cheapest, Easiest trucks out there to lift. Everything on the front end is so simple. BUt tell ya what. I have a 3" Body lift sitting around my house for that truck. Never been used. Everything still in the box. If your looking for a lift, I'll dig it up if your interested.
It's a PA as well.

What?? How can anything in your shock boots lift the truck?

Those are coil spring spacers. They go UNDER the coil springs.

heh, a shock does not raise or lower suspension. all they do is recover from jounce (going over bumps and stuff).

they are not cheapest or easiet to lift, a SFA is...but they are realitivly cheap. allignment woes are mostly toe because they put more load on the camber and caster. camber can be fixed with allignment bushings but caster is still outta wack.

go for it and make sure u get a proper allignment after.

Those are leveling coil spacers as some one said earlyer. Get it aligned corectly or it will eat your tires. If you want a slight lift in the rear i have a set of explorer springs you can have should give around 2inches of lift in the back.

Thanks for the body lift offer but I already have on on the truck. As for the alignment that will be no big deal since my buddy runs an auto repair shop. Earl I'll let you know if I do it or not, I would only need a little lift in the rear. I am mostly just trying to get a little extra ground clearance for cheap. I really don't want to dump a crap load of money into the truck right now but I do want to be able to have a little fun with it. I told my ol' lady that I wanted the spacers for x-mas so we'll see. She keeps *****ing everything I tell her is to expensive. Thanks for the answers guys. I'll see some of you at Wharton on the 11th hopefully.
