Default Need help leveling this out!

I've been all over looking for the answer to this... I'm sure it's out there but I can't find it. Sorry if this has already been beaten to death.

My experience with lifts is limited, and on this type of front end (ttb) it's zero. I need help figuring out what needs to be done to the front end to level this truck out.

Would a set of springs get me there? Or do they not provide much lift??

This is a 96 4x4 with a 4.0.

Do you want to bring the front up? Or the back end down?

A separate lift kit will be needed for the front. You'll have to match the lift height in the back. And, if appearance is important, larger tires. If you get the larger tires, you'll also need to have the program changed to your speedo. There's lots of info here for lifts. I don't have them at my finger tips on my phone, but a quick search will get you there.

----------

Copy & Paste time:

Since you are 4WD - you only have the following general options when it comes to lifting your truck:[*]1"-2" Torsion Bar Crank = Cost is only an alignment.[*]Pre-Key Mod (If 2008+ Ranger) = Gets you to the height of a pre-08 stock 4WD Ranger. Then you can perform option #1 from there.[*]2" Leveling Kit (AKA - Torsion Keys) = Waste of money, same as a torsion bar crank - see option #1 above.[*]3" Body Lift (Performance Accessories or Summit Brand) = +/- $200 + Install[*]4" Superlift = +/- $2,000 + Install[*]Custom SAS = "Let your imagination take control of your wallet"

Pick your poison.

Rear is the simple part....shackles, AAL or new leaf springs are the "popular" choices.

Ah ok, no problem, I was just scratching my head. It sounds like removing that block above the axle in the back is the way to go... Just return it to OEM ride height and be done with the damn thing
