Question Big Coil spring question? Please help, thanks.

Does anyone know if the coil springs on a 94 Ranger Splash s/c 4.0L w/air and automatic are the same height as on a Regular 94 Ranger s/c? I called the service manager at the dealer today and he said he thinks they are the same height. It would seem that they should know for sure. Anyway, the parts guy at the dealer said all they go by is the plate on the door jam to get the sring code. Mine say 'K K' for the spring code. Does anyone have a regular ranger 94 s/c w/4.0L that they can tell me what their plate says. Autozone and Advance show no difference in their books for the Splash and Regular versions, they only have one spring part# listed in their books, unless you have a STX version. I did not know Ford had a STX version Ranger in 94, so I was thinking that this may be what their books were referring to. I asked this question on another forum and was told there is a 1" difference in height of the springs. But I was thinking that just because the Splash sits lower, it may not be the springs that are shorter, instead it may be the design of the front end. Thanks for your help in advance.

As far as I am aware the 93 - 97 ranger 2wds models used the same spring.

The lunatic is right. There is only one part number for 93-97 Rangers in the Ford suspension parts list (F37Z 5310 F). There is also a note: "Order by spring code". This indicates that there could be different spring rates, load rates, or heights used. Or even running changes during the productin run. Different rates may have been used based on the original build configuration. (My '94 XLT SC 4.0 5-sp has code FE springs). If you are trying to change your ride, try to find one set up the way you want yours, and take the code from that one to order springs for yours.
