Default HELP!!! lifting a 93 ford ranger 2wd

i need some help on ways to lift the front end of my ranger up. i have a 1993 ford ranger 2wd and i have already installed 3 in blocks in the rear. i want to lift the front up to level it out. how many inches do i need to lift it to level the truck. i want the cheapest way without to much trouble. any sites or ways of doing this for CHEAP because i am on a very tight budget. i want to put at least 31s on it and soon. the front sags as it is now so does anyone know what to do to level it without messing up the driving. please help with this soon because i need to get my new tires on and soon. also what would be a good size and cheapest brand without rubbing. any and all ideas welcome.

the spring price depends on your junkyard, the install isnt that hard its just take yours out and replace, the alignments depends on your local shop. One thread I was reading somebody said chevy 1500 coils work also

jeep coils fit to but the front of a ranger is heavier so 4" is like 2.5-3"

jeep coils wont work the compresion ratio is to low u need to use a hlf ton spring from a f150 or if u want more heighth go withh a 3/4 ton spring its a little closer to the same ratio. as far of how easy it is u need a freind that weighs atleast 220 and a strong arm. patrs youll need: a camber nut of 3.75 to make sure to get the right alighnment on the ibeams and a drop pitman of three inches to keep everything in line. you may need longer brake hoses. my tire size is 275/55r 20 with half ton springs equivlent to a 32x10.5
