yes in the front you can use the f150 coils the only way i can see the expo springs and bronco is cuz the are longer and if you stick with a spring over itll lift it about 2 in give or take.

He covered it. Spring over means the rear axle, since the rear leafs can be run spring under axle, or spring over axle, like stock. You should be able to use the Expo/Bronco springs as long as you keep the truck spring over axle.

Are you guys meaning Bronco or BII for the Bronco? I don't know if a fullsized Bronco leaf spring would fit on a Ranger.

If you are looking for just a little 2 inch lift. Get an add a leaf and put it in.

Make sure to get longer shocks for your lift and an alignment.

Im talking BII the fullsize would be more like the chevy 64 swap making move the inner perch toward the cab. The AAl would be easier not sure why he was wanting to swap rears didnt ask prob should have though.
