Question 2001 2wd lift ??????

Im trying to lift my 2wd 2001 Ranger Reg. Cab. 2.5L N/A

I dont want to do a body lift..

I dont have torsion keys so cant do that..

and I dont want to buy the 1000$ kit fabtech makes..

I found that a spindle lift in the front and an add a leaf in the back would work with my truck but I dont want to spend a grand. Does anyone know where I can get an inexpensive spindle lift from or something else that would work with my 2wd ranger???
PLEASE NOT EBAY

Least expensive price I could find was 650$ but all you got were the spindles.. do you need anything else for the front??

Thank you for any advice because ive kinda hit a wall with this one

its awesome youve already done research. look up doetsch spindles. basically the same as the fabtechs but about $600 cheaper. they can be picked up for around $400. or you can go with coil spacers for about $70. i have those on my truck currently. i got them from fatbobsgarage.com. great product and a great company. as for the rear, beltech 6400 shackles for around $50 will do the job. good luck!

if you found spindles for 650 you weren't looking hard enough. search on here, i just posted a link earlier to a store that sells spindles for less than 400. there are other threads with other information if you search for it on here too.
