Default The Extra Needed Inch Of Lift?

I was wondering what else would one be able to do to get the inch of extra lift to level out the front, If they already have lift coils, and 2" Coil spacers in the front of a 94 Ford Ranger? Is there any extra "tricks" that one would be able to gain the extra inch of lift in the suspension, not a body lift?

Those rubber donut spring spacers work real good for about an inch.

Thanks for the quick reply, Can I use the rubber coil spacers w/ the 2" Poly spacers that are actually in contact w/ the spring?

yeah, these go in the spring, middle or top or werever. I have 4 of them if you need some. They have already been cut to fit the ranger spring. Otherwise the rubber was overlapping by like 2".

well, they can be kinda pita. You have to jack up the front and let the suspension hang. Remove tire. Use some oil and "feed" an end into the spring. Then, you just beat it in with a hammer. When you start getting around the spring, just push it to "wind" it up the coil. Repeat until the entire spacer is in. I found they worked best at the top, otherwise the ride was VERY stiff if in the middle
