Level or Lift Kit 02 2wd Ranger XLT

I am interested in leveling or lifting my 02 Ranger XLT 2wd 4.0L. I found some 31x10.5x15 tires that I like and from all the research I've done it says they will fit on stock suspension. however I do not want to have to deal with rubbing or trimming and I;ve wanted to level/lift the truck for a while. Anyone have any springs, showcks, etc. for sale and what do yall think the best option is without hurting my wallet too bad.

You shouldn't have to worry about rubbing with those tires, but if you want to raise the front end up a little, just crank the torsion bars to level the front and go get an alignment afterwards. Leveling keys are a waste of money.

Oh, okay. You still shouldn't have any issues with those tires though. You could get coil spacers if you're still worried about it. That'd be your cheapest/easiest option for getting some lift up front.

Ok, thanks. Will the spacers affect the cv or ball joints?

If you're 2wd, you don't have CVs.

As long as you stay under 2" or so, the ball joint angles will still be pretty reasonable.

Body lift

I have a body lift on my 2005 3.0 ranger and I can fit 33's with the lift and I'm probably going to be selling it in a couple of months switching over to coilovers I'm located in NC
