is it a 4cyl 3.0 4.0L

I "think" if you get explorer coils from a 91-94 it would give you a little bit or try some STX ranger coils that would def give you some.

best way to level a car is to drive over it with a dozer ...

i think ranger 4wd coils should lift it a bit. if you would like, i have my stock ranger coils sitting in the garage and i can measure them for you. also i put the daystar coil spring spacers on my truck, and it rides just fine, no ride quality difference, just a little taller.
