Default 2001 XLT 2wd front end lift

I just put 31s on my truck and now I need to lift the front of it a little bit. I'm pretty sure that I can put coil spacers on my truck. This is what I'm trying to figure out, what I'm supposed to do to lift it. If it is coil springs can I do a 3" spacer?

You will have a super stiff ride, but it will work. I wouldn't do more than a 1" spacer. You will also need to rent a ball joint puller and spring compress to install.

Every web site I look at doesn't have spacers for my truck, can't find any lift springs either. Really can't even find nice shocks. Kinda confused and frustrated.

With the lift coils, you will need new UCAs as well due to different angle caused by the coils. Those will also give a stiffer ride.

Yea shocks are hard to find on some sites, since they do not let you narrow it down past just being a Ranger since you have different length shocks between 2wd and 4wd.
