Default Rough Country Leveling Coils 1.5 inches

Hello Im sorry but im new to this site and it may be answered already. I have a 1994 xlt 4x4 4.0l v6 5 speed ranger. I am looking to buying the rough country leveling coils that will raise the fron about 1.5 inches, Do I need to buy new camber bushings? If so what kind and does anyone know the degrees I will need? Do they make adjustable camber bushings?

I have that leveling kit. You don't have to have the bushings. I went ahead and changed mine bc I'm doing a larger lift later on. But no, you don't have to have them

Im looking to do only the leveling kit, Will not changing the bushings hurt when I try to get it aligned?

Alignment shop said they didn't have to have them being only 1.5", but then again it would be easier if you got them. Twin I beams are hard to align I'm the first place

So I do need the bushings? I definitely dont want it to look like that. With the rough country 1.5 inch leveling kit what bushings do you recommend? I have no idea

Just go to napa and get 2* camber bushings like $40 I think

You really won't know until your down there, which is the bad thing. I got Moog bushings good for up to 4 degrees of adjustment, just to be safe. They were like $40 a piece though

I put 1.5 coils under the front of my 97, and went all the way up to 4degree bushings and it sill wouldnt align properly. Is there anything you can get to drop the twin i-beam to compensate the coil springs?
