So I assume UCA means upper control arms, would these be these

Moog K80068 Front Upper Control Arm and Ball Joint
$96.57 - Quantity: 1 - In Stock
Condition: New
Sold by: Amazon.com, LLC

Of course amazon has them cheaper.

Gotta remember he is lower than a 4wd by a bit. I saw a 2wd coil ranger with the 3" body, 3" spindle and 3" coil with a 3.0 on 35s I think it was...wish I could remember the user name.

Maybe try the aluminum leveling kits on ebay for $50. Those blocks are 2" think and install under the spring, still retain ride quality but gain some more lift.

Were installing them tomaro on my ol mans 2wd ranger. Will post pics with step-by-step how to.

should be able to find some OEM blocks for cheaper. Since the 2wd xlt does not come with blocks.

This is what I was speaking of:

I suppose tho if your truck is post '97 this wont work. These are ment to go under front coil springs.
