Ya but I suggest you get the good stuff, Camburg makes a 2.5" performance lift coil for the coil sprung ranger. Not only is it sick powder coat red, but its gonna give you a better ride and offroad performance.. A little more pricey though, about 250 and whatever shipping is.

Shackles are a better option because you don't need new ubolts(which themselves can cost as much if not more than the shackles), you don't have to touch the u-bolts, and shackles are easier to install. And you add no additional wheel hop. Plus, the ride usually gets better with taller shackles. If you do go with blocks, find some stock ford ones. Stay away from aluminum blocks.

that sounds like the best option. i think ill look into the shackles instead!! Thanks!!
where would be the best place to get the shackles and the coils or spacers?

as for the wheels i got them off of craigslist, and the tires are from NTB.
