Default Leveling Kit or Lift Kit

I have a 03 2wd Ranger 6cyl. Took it off road once too many times. Bent my spindles and bought new ones spindles and had them installed under the table that ended up beeing too tall for the kit I already had on the truck. That was no biggy, just a stiff front end. BUT this also caused my upper A arm's weld to break. So the question stands. Should i get a leveling kit (hard to find one with spindle and a arm) or an entirely new lift kit?

No leveling kit available for the Ranger. Do you have an EDGE or xlt?

And what do you mean the new spindles were too tall for the kit? I am having problems following you on that.

Kinda hard for us to help you out if we really don't know what you've got.

There's 03 2wd Ranger 6cyl torsion bars(EDGE model) and there's 03 2wd Ranger 6cyl coil springs(XLT/XL model). Both are entirely different suspensions and different frames. We need to know that before we can really help ya out.
