    i am very new to the off road scene (i'm a noob)

    i have a 99 eddie bauer ex 5.0 awd and i want between 4-6 inches of lift (suspension and body)

    i have read about the tt and shackles and body lifts everything sounds good

    but there is no body lift kits for my year explorer (that i have found). will a extended cab ranger kit work or hockey pucks with longer bolts?

    and how high can you lift the front end just by torsion twist or is it better to get keys?

    i thank you for your help in advance

    you will have to buy the body lift for a ranger. or find the lift pucks and just get longer bolts. theres a thread on her to let you know how long the stock bolts are in the respected location then it tells you how much to add for say a 3 inch body lift. the TT will be between 1.5 to 2 inches the few i have seen as well as mine after driving for a week settle to about 1.75 in. you could look into warrior shackles they give you a 1.75 lift in the rear i believe may be a 1.25 IIRC.


    here is the link for the shackles...
