Have any of you guys installed a one inch coil spring spacer on your 1991-1994 Explorer and still been able to align it?

In general a 2" is the max you can go and still get aligned.

A F-150 lower spring seat lift it about 1 5/8" and is a common addition and is used as a cheap lift kit very often and is still alignable.

Soo.. a 1" will change the geomoetry even less so should also be very alignable

Just to clarify a bit, 2" of actual lift height is generally the max you can go and still be able to align it.

A 2" thick spacer however will lift the truck 3" due to the lever action of the TTB suspension, and it may not align correctly.

IIRC, the F-150 pieces are 1.25" thick and give just under 2" of actual lift (a 1" thick spacer would give you 1.5" lift).
 






Cool. Thanks for the help guys.
 






i have superlift's 5.5" coils with skyjacker 6" lift brackets and my alignment sucked and when i had the coil spacers made and we installed them it corrected the alignment. but in your case, you should be able to get it aligned.
