Default straight axle ranger lift coil Qs

im helping a friend of mine do a straight axle under a 93 Ranger with a Jeep Cherokee Dana 30. If we use 6.5" Cherokee lift coils will it give about that in lift or should we be counting on more or less. any help is great thanks

you might want to investigate using ford coil buckets
it all depends where you mount the coil buckets on the frame
( ford bronco coil buckets ) the ford 4.0 litre engine is heavier than a straight six 4.0

Thats all i got right now he has all the pics on his camera. This was before we got the new buckets made its just a touch taller than that and actually ssitting on its own weight now. We just need to finish making the trac bar and steering.
