What do you have now? I have a 3.0 with 32's and a 4.10 rear end. I barely noticed it when they put the tires on. Ive always been curious about getting 4.56 my self.

i got 4.10's. i did the math, and 4.10 was the closest ratio i could find to make my truck drive like it still had the 3.73s and stock tires.

I have an '11 Ranger with coil springs. I bought the spacers suggested on page 1.
I read that the shocks need to be changed, can anyone recommend me which ones to use? I'm not off roading, just don't like the low front end at all. Thanks....!

that would be overkill I think, unless you dont do any highway driving and mostly offroading. 33's and 4.56's though... mmmmm i can only dream

Default Re: Is it possible to lift a 2wd coil front Ranger?

Ok, let me try again...
I am about 14000 miles from my truck. It is a 2wd with coil springs. I purchased the spacers from Fat Bob's or something like that.
Now I don't know if my truck has front shocks or Struts of some kind.
So if I take it too a garage to have the spacers installed will they know what kind of shocks / struts to install or will I need to tell them or order them first?
Thanks...duder

you'll probably have to order them first. these shocks have a shock with a separate coil, not a strut set up. only one i know who got longer shocks for his coil spacers is 2004xlmiller

Thanks doyouquaxu. Someone where I work says he didn't think I would need to change shocks for 2 inches. I have no idea at all. So I wanted to ask before I show up at a shop with money and no clue.
Thanks again!

Is there a reason why I should not use these to bring the front end up a little higher?
