It depends on what year Ranger and how much you want to lift it. The rear leaf springs are above the rear axle, so you can put in blocks between the axle and spring, and longer shackle u-bolts. The front is a different story. Older Rangers that use a Twin I-Beam suspension can use taller springs, called "leveling coils", or possibly spring spacers and longer spring bolts, but this requires the use of adjustable camber adjustment sleeves to adjust the alignment. There are also replacement I-Beams that have a lift built in to them. Newer Rangers use a different suspension, which can be modified with taller springs, but also requires some realignment. Go to someplace like Tuff Country, J.C. Whitney, or any one of many off-road supply shops. Get yourself an off road magazine like Off Roader, Four Wheeler, or something similar and check out the ads. There's a million of them. Well, not a million, but a lot.
