In the rear you can do a 2in AA the front you can do a 1.5 spacer or if you have t-bars you can crank those, or you can do a 3in body lift. Sticky is at the top of the page with options.

----------

Or you can do a shackle in the rear

----------

if by spacer you mean the puck on top of the coil they do only 1.5 after that you need new arms

I know i can buy spacers (but don't know where to find 3inch only 2 so if any one can show me that would be much appreciated) can be found on ebay, suspension max, amazon, summit, and if you look in the sticky there are PN's the front you can do a 1.5 spacer or if you have t-bars you can crank those, or you can do a 3in body lift, f by spacer you mean the puck on top of the coil they do only 1.5 after that you need new arms

. But cant i just go over to the junk yard and grab a leaf from another ranger and add it to my leafs? Sure if you want a rough ass ride

wont that just lift my back end just as me buying a new one would? Yes

Does that break it down for you enough Dude

yes you can add leafs. You should buy new center bolts or if your handy with a grinder just round the heads on some grade 8 bolts. Then just get a couple leaf packs, tear yours apart and add in the leafs. I added 2 more of the overload leafs in my lifted ranger, along with a bds 2" AAL for a jeep. adding extra leafs tho will make it ride stiff
