moved to suspension tech.

You will have to get spindles and stuff for that. gets pricey. Just get a BL. alot cheaper for the same results. I have also seen too many people snap a spindle with those lifted spindles. just my $.02

I got a 3" body lift on my 2wd Ranger and it looks great to me! If it's just for everyday driving, definately get a body lift.

I got mine from Performance Accessories off of ebay. It was 280 at that time. They should be a little cheaper now, but not a whole lot cheaper. Maybe in the 225-250 range.
