Default Any help to bring it up?

Alright my 1996 Ranger is really low. Its 2WD so I'm not really wanting a lift kit. Is there anything I can do with the suspension to get about a 2 inch raise all the way around fro cheap? Thanks, JP

You don't want a lift kit but you want to modify the suspension to lift it? Why are you immediately ruling out a lift kit?

i want some way to get just a couple inches of lift all the way around. I'm lookong for a cheap mod. Maybe overload springs in the rear and a block lift in the front? I'm not sure what to do so I'm asking for experience or help. Thanks

lol springs in the back and a block in the front.. you have no knowledge of your suspension do you?

you have twin i beams. you can get coil spacers (2 inches of lift) for the front, wich would level it. (trucks come with more rake to offset hauling crap in the bed). you could stick a lift block in the back, or an add a leaf
