Default Wanting to lift my 96 Mazda B3000 cheap

Hi, I just joined the site. I need suggestions on my lift.

Might take a leaf off in the back because it sits too high and the front is too low (looks like a funny drag racing car.)

Wanting to level it "prerunner" style.

My truck is a 96 mazda B3000 4wd 5speed BASE

Thinking about buying some rancho shocks and some coils. But im afraid it won't do the job, can't find spacers(amazon and ebay say it only fits rangers and not mazda's)

Don't really want a legit lift right now, i want a cheap buy.


Can anybody help me out?

Thankyou very much

Welcome to FRF!

----------

Does your truck have springs or torsion bars?

it should have torsion bars since it's a 4x4 and built in a ford ranger plant.

if your truck is 4wd then it prolly has twin traction beams...ford used that setup until 98 then the t-bars came out
