So according to Google, when converting that over to your 'funny money': $1,407.95 US = $ 1,481.30 Canadian.

Not sure what shipping changes there would be dealing with Canada - it might kill it.

If that's a 'fully installed' price I would believe it.

Stay away from lift blocks if at all possible. They'll ruin your leaf springs. 4" on a spindle alone sounds like a lot but I could be wrong. If you're trying to save costs, I would go 2 on the spindle 2 on the coils for the front and for the rear 2" shackles and maybe a 2" block but like I said I'm not a huge fan of those. You more then likely don't need 4" in the back as the back is usually higher than the front by roughly an inch or so.

X2. Do the 2" spindle, 2" coil in the front and 2" shackles in the rear. Then your truck will sit level. And 35"s aren't really necessary, go with 33"s.

They don't make a 2" spindle. It's between 3"-4" for the spindle so if you do a spindle and coil spacer you'll be higher in the front

OK. Trying to figure out if this will work. I have a 2010 Ranger XLT ext cab 4x4 w/4.0 and automatic. I want to lift the truck 3 inches but have read not to use torsion keys and to replace the torsion bars with spring load 1 pre 2007 bars. Now my question is can I replace the torsion bars and get a little lift up front and the put the torsion keys on and crank them up for only 2" to get a total of 3" in front? I figure that may help the ride and not be so stiff as if I just put on the keys and cranked them all the way up. Thanks. Phil

No blocks. Add a leaf in the rear for about 2" lift.

I put on the 3 inch key lift and 2"
add a leaf plus pro comp 3000 shocks ($295 total cost). Just added 255/85r16 Maxxis Bighorn tires that are true 33"tires. Sits excellent. Could crank the bars a little but I'm getting no rubbing anywhere. The ride is still excellent and not stiff at all but still a little stiffer than stock. I'm happy with the outcome.

Don't crank your bars with the keys on. You will destroy your cv axles
