Default Leaf Spring Broke

I have a 2000 Ranger trailhead edition. I had a leafspring break. I am tring to do this myself and have found there are many different springs that are identified by letters. Does anybody know where to look for this code???

Thanks,
Keystone78629

Welcome to the forum. I myself am not sure about that. If you call a 4x4 shop or the dealer they may be able to identify it by make/model or your VIN

Ford used over 40 different springs on the Ranger from '86-'03, therefore, replacement in pairs is recommended.


you should be able to find a replacement by
number like this, count how many leafs and the width
EXAMPLE:
3/1 .. 2-1/2 inches wide
that is 3 leafs to one large mounting leaf
pic shows a 3/1 (bottom small leaf is a mounting plate)

I got great help from General Spring, Kansas City, Mo.....I believe. They have "add-a-leaf" springs to stiffen the suspension and also complete spring stacks for very reasonable pricing especially considering you are in Texas. They have a web page. Dave...I was super satisfied with price and product.
