Default Where to get coil springs online

Ok so i've been wanting to do some kind of lift with my truck but the body lift that i got for my truck didn't work so i was wondering if i could get some input on where to get decent coil spacers online and shackles to lift the back

Try summitracing.com or ebay. Make sure you give the sellers the proper specs to your truck

why didnt the body lift work?

spacers make the ride really harsh. i recommend getting spindles for the front and shackles and/or AAL for the back.

a perforance shop rarely puts spacers on the ranger due to how the spring sits in the a arm but u can get the screw in spacers but its a super rough ride u can get new spindels or taller shocks and springs with blocks,aal, or shackles for the rear

the body lift didn't work cause my truck was automatic and 2w drive so i was also told i could do a spindle but those are expensive and would longer shocks lift up my truck?

whoever told you that a body lift could not work is not firing on all cylinders...it will work.

spindles are around $350, and shocks will not lift your truck. with spindles you would not need new shocks for the front, only the rear if you were to lift that.

i bought my AALs on summitracing.com, but the beltech 6400 shackles are easier to install for rear lift as you will not have to disassemble the leaf pack.
