lol, i'm not gonna say it.

If the Mazdas are the same as the Rangers, which are similar to the F-Series, then you have a small amount of options. You can get spacers for the coil springs. This will probably mess up your camber though, so you'll have to figure out how to align it. I don't know if the Ranger uses the same camber adjusters to adjust camber like the F-Series does. Your other option is drop brackets, that is, if your front suspension is of the I beam variety. You'll need the drop brackets for the I-Beams, as well as the radius arms.

Now, whether or not this stuff is produced for Rangers, i'm not sure. I know it is for F-Series. Try all the suspension places to see if this stuff is even offered for 4x2 Rangers. If so, try Craigslist to see if you can find stuff on the cheap.

Other than that, there's not much you can do.

BTW, 4x4 should be a bolt in swap for you, just so you know.

Yep. The TTB Dana 35 front axle is setup pretty similar to the 4x2 I beams. It's just a matter of finding the parts to swap in to your truck. Do a search on it, it's been done before.

There's alot of little things you need to take into account like gear ratios, but if you know what you're doing or know somebody else that knows what they're doing, then it's quite simple.

i looked at that and it seems like there are allot of parts needed. would a 1995 ford f150 4x4 axle and beams work. and could i change back the bolt pattern back.
