Default Leveling kit please help

i have a 2004 2wd Ford Ranger with coil springs, i was wondering if they make a leveling kit for it so my new 31" tires dont rub while making hard turns in bumps. also i was wondering, i saw a 2" lift coil spring by fabtec and it said it Requires Fabtech Upper Control Arms. Is this true or just a marketing thing? please help, id rather not put a bosy lift as im only looking to raise the front.

P.S. im new to the forum so if this has been answered sorry

Thanks!

----------

Oh and if i did do a body lift, is it possible to just lift the front of the cab and not the back, that way i didnt have to lift the bed and everything? just like lift the front half of the cab

2in leveling kit this should fit I believe- http://www.summitracing.com/parts/DYS-KF09101BK/

Fabtech Springs yes you need the uppers, just go with a spindle lift run 33's http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...t_pn=FABKIT280

I dont have enough $$ for a spindle lift and the leveling kits only good for rangers up to 96' and mines and 04'

any other thoughts?
would cutting 3" body lift to a 1" body lift be practical? i want to stay away from the space in the bumpers and moving radiators and stuff, sucks they cant just make a leveling kit to fit the 04'

I used the same kit on my 00 (the spacer kit) it worked you have to look at the daystar website it will cross referance I dont think the buckets change you can also look at geting f150 springs and swapping them in. Also I wouldnt cut the body lift if you can wait just save the money then again a body lift isnt that much work to put on.
