Yup, $40. That included priority shipping. They are a little bit of a pain in the ass to install. I wouldn't recommend anyone doing it without an experienced friend around. You also need the proper tools to keep the coil spring from coming out and hurting somebody. The coil spacers I purchased are an inch in thickness, but when installed gave my truck 2 3/4 inches. Almost three.

Yes, I am an 88M in the New Mexico Army National Guard. I'm in 613th FSC.

All 4wd rangers 98-Current are Torsion bar front suspension setups. So the CORRECT answer to this question, is no.

Only the TTB/TIB trucks are able to run coil spacers... That and SAS trucks.
