    I ran into alaskanjack and i thought he said that stock ranger springs will lift an explorer about 1 and a half inches. Does anyone know for sure? Thanks, chico

    Oh yeah...the springs!

    I know for a fact that Explorer springs will lift a Bronco II about 1.5 inches. It may lift the Rangers cause they had a lighter curb weight and a smaller engine in the older ones. Try looking around on The Ranger Station. they have a lot of info on those type of mods.

    Good luck!

    I say Ranger springs in an Ex would either stay at the same height, or lower it slightly, depending on if the Ranger had a 4.0, or a smaller lighter engine.

    Yea...I was talking about coil springs...Sorry ....So what I'm understanding is that ranger coils won't lift an ex up at all...right?

    hehehe


    No what I was saying was I installed a set of ranger 1.5" lift coils up front. Then added some f150 spacers under the coils.

    I am still holding onto your number to get together with ya.

    I have a lot of work to do to my trail rig since I broke another superlift extended radius arm and need to replace my steering gearbox.
