    Alright.. I just got myself a '97 2wd explorer a few months ago, been saving up some money to finish the down payment and everything, but now im ready to start building it up. but i've noticed alot of the suspension makers and everyone only build for 4wd or for older and newer explorers. i was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction and help me out. any input would be nice.

    welcome to the site... the search button is your friend.... ;)

    anyways.. you can do a torsion twist for some good amount of lift, also lift spindles are available, also a bodylift is an option and then for the rear of the truck add a leafs, shackles, or an soa...... and any combination between

    Thanks man. I already did the torsion lift. it looks alright for now. Do you know who would be the best to shop at for parts? Thats my biggest problem right now is that I can't find anything for my particular model. It kind of sucks..

    What are your plans for the truck? Do you want to go pre-runner? You have 2wd so you have a bunch of options.. You can get 3" lift spindles, TT, shackles, SOA, 2 or 3 inch body lift, etc. Do a search for Splat, it was a 2wd lift explorer.
