Default 2000 and 2004 suspension question

Are the suspension from the 2000 xlt ranger identical to the suspension on the 2004 alt ranger? both 2wd. do they have the same springs/mounts/etc.

Thanks

If you can go take a pic of your where your coil spring sits and I can tell you Im across the world right now or I would be able to look I havent looked at the susp on anything after 00 but Im pretty sure ( and I dont see why they would change) its the same.

Found this on the net right behind the tire where the bags are is where the coil goes into the frame.
