Default New leaf springs

I want to get new leaf springs and someone other ranger i saw had add a leafs, how do those go in and where do i go about finding them? and how high of a lift will it give? I read the other post that says it will make the ride stiffer and idk if i want an even stiffer ride after the tbar crank. Thanks

any offroad website will have AAL, they go in your existing leaf pack after the overload leaf. Will give you about 1.5 to 2 inches

procomp I believe

you have to buy an actual lift kit like superlift if you want to raise the front up more than the 2" you get out of a t-bar crank.
