Default Spindle lift WITH coil spring spacers!!!!

Can someone please send me a picture of there 2wd truck with a spindle lift and coil spring spacers with shackles in the back?? NY 2003 ranger currently has coil spring spacers with shackles but I'm thinking about buying a 4 inch spindle and I want to know how it would look. I plan on keeping my coil spring spacers because I don't do any off roading. PLEASE send me pictures I want to see how it would look! Thanks.

just a 3" spindle lift on stock springs no spacers. It rides great

Also, would off-road be where the ride quality doesn't matter? Ride should matter when your daily driving it

Off road does make a slight difference between spacers/coils but if it's for street and he's okay with a stiffer ride, he's fine. Most Ranger owners don't want to deal with the stiffer ride quality. OP seems to be one of those guys (like myself) who gets used to it and doesn't complain.

Here's my truck with a 4 inch spindle, 2 inch coils and shackles sitting on 31's:

Dude thanks so much and NICE truck! Are your shackles on the highest setting?? And yeah people make it seem like the ride is so unbearable but it's really not, the ride is just a bit more stiff, I really don't mind. BTW does the combination of 2 inch coil spacers and a 4 inch spindle result in an even greater lift or is it the same without 2inch coil spacers cuz the spindle lift is 2 inches bigger? I hope you understand my question lol

I appreciate it man, thanks. I get you, nobody seems to understand that the ride is not that bad. And yes my shackles are on the top setting. In that pic my truck is about 2" higher in the front. A block from a 4x4 Ranger should level it out.

Yes I understand your question, they are two separate lifts, so the spindle will add 4 inches to your current 2 inch lift.

4" spindle + 2" spacers = 6" lift
