Would This Lift Work?

Ok. so i have a 95 ranger 3.0 with beams <3 and i was thinking could i get 4 inch lift springs and do a 2 inch block in the rear? i understand i will need new shocks but is it really this simple for a front lift? i am also aware of me going to need a alignment badly lol luckily im in automotive at school and i can do all of this FREE:)

i could really use yall inputs guys also if yall have any other ideas? im trying to get like a 3-4 lift for about $300 max if possible or am i crazy?

Thanks again!

You're going to need drop bracketry for a 4" lift upfront. You'll never get it aligned with just springs.

x2.
I've got F-150 coils in mine, Wasn't easy, adds about 1" to level the truck out.
Putting springs in also isn't easy. just saying.

like, 1.5", 2" if you use spacers.
There just isn't a viable suspension lift option for TTB trucks without paying an arm and a leg.
