i have a 2wd and i was wanting to raise the front myself just to level it out a little. what i did was buy a 3 inch lift and made the truck appear more level. if you're gonna lift it, lift it; not just the front.

cool Re: How can I do this??

On a late-model 4x4 Ranger it's easy, just take it to an alignment shop and have them turn the torsion bars down. This will raise the front a little. Don't do more than 1.5", 2" at most because you lose the downtravel then. It will need to be realigned afterward.

You can also get different coil springs and shocks for the front that will raise the front end about 2 inches it worked for my ranger. I chose trailmaster but im shure theres other company's that make something for it.

1998-up Ranger 4x4's do not have coil springs in front,they have torsion bars.

Re: How can I do this??

rofl hes right,but check this out they seel these lil thingys for $15 a 4 pack that wil do 2 springs either lift/lower they can be tought to get in but u wil get up 2 2 inches up or down with em and they go right on the springs
however i wouldent ever recomend removing and not geting new shocks n springs right away or u get what i call "looseass" u see when u floor it ur ass slams the floor, rofl and when u stop the rear tires almost pop up, howeve ri did this intentionaly and stil want more, otherwise they make it more stable to lil rough at times
