Default Which Lift??

Alright so I wanna lift my truck (2007 Ford Ranger Sport 2WD)...but im kind of stuck on how to..I was going to get 3' spindles with the 2in add-a-leaf but when i see pics of trucks with it installed the front of the truck looks a little bit higher than the rear,now do you say that I should do the spindles with the add-a-leaf or the spindles with shackles??Which would get the truck the most level...I'm leaning towards the spindles with shackles just cause its a little bit cheaper...regardless of what set-up i run I'm gonna go with 17 inch XD Series addict wheels wrapped with some 285/70-17

IMHO, if you're going to crank the torsion bars get the AAL. If you plan on leaving the torsion bars fairly stock just get a shackle.

With 285s I would suggest leaving the torsion bars stock and getting a shackle lift.

Ya I was thinking about doing the 3 in Spindles with the shackles in the rear and then maybe doing a mild torsion crank and getting a 1 or 2 inch block to level it out if there is any un-levelness but changed the wheel and tire set-up i think ima go with PCW Series 152 Flat Black (15x8) with some Bfg 33x12.50-15's.

I like your plan minus the blocks, your Ranger already has blocks, don't stack them.

oh ya kinda forgot about that...what about if i would take the stock block which looks like a 2 inch block and just replace it with a 3''? that would be another inch on top of what i already had...cause see my problem is i wanna lift the ranger and be able to tell that it is lifted...so does anyone have a 06+ ranger sport with the set up i want or atleast something similar

dang man those 17" XD addicts with 285s sounded badass... addicts with 33x12.5 bfgs would be sick... IMO go with the 3' spindles and then a shackle lift in the back and call it a day
