Default 2010 2wd ext coil spring spacers

Been looking at coil spacers for my truck. I haven’t had any luck find one for my rig it’s a 2010 2.3 ext cab 2wd. All the lifts i find in the description say
“98-2010 ranger 2wd; does not fit extended cab trucks”. The single cab 2wd and extended cab 2wd use the same front springs I believe, so what would be the issue using the spacers on my extended cab?

Skip the spacers and get lift spindles, keeps the nice factory ride and no harsh angles on ball joints

Next to impossible to find ones for 2010/2011, in 2010 they added electronic stability control witch have a bigger sensor. spindles on the market all have smaller sensor ports as they are mostly made for 98-09. Also im not looking to spend 500$ on a front lift at the moment lol

I have a set of spacers ordered now. My front springs have 250,000km on them so they are pretty soft lol. I lifted my rear and added a leaf when I installed my fx4 rear end, so i needed to lift my front end bad! but really tight on money atm so i had to take the cheap route short term. I have my eye on a set of 3” lifted prerunner coils to get when i have the funds lol
