Question 94 Ranger XLT lift Removal

Sorry if this is posted somewhere but I cant find an answer anywhere online.

I have a 1994 Ranger XLT 2.3L Rwd manual that was lifted by the previous owner that I want to revert back to stock height, I know about cars and motorcycles but this is my first truck so I need some help.

I believe I just need to replace the Idler Arm, Front springs, shocks and tires along with removing lift blocks and an alignment, I do not see anything lifting the rear besides the shocks.

Please let me know if there is anything else I need to order or replace that you can see.

Default Thanks

Yes I meant pitman arm, I keep calling it idler for some odd reason.

I think I see, the bottom two leaf springs are the add a leaf? I can probably get a tool to remove that, I cant really carry leaf springs on my bike to easily.

and Ive added two more pictures to the album, those side blocks come out and the stock radius arm mount just bolts back to the frame.

what do those front arms connect too when I remove the from two blocks?

do the two bars attached to the sway arm come out or do they just push the sway arm up higher?

Thanks for the help so far

On the front, you will need OEM axle beam pivot brackets. ( the inner 2 green circles in picture #2). Because what you have are special brackets for the lift. Your sway bar links may need to be replaced with OEM length links. You could try driving it without the sway bar and see if there is too much body role around corners.

Junk yard is probably best place to find this stuff.

That makes sense, I didn't know what the axle beam pivot brackets were called, but that helps a bunch. Thank you
