Iv got a 88 rwd ranger with a 6 inch stage two skyjacker lift. I know it’s not 4 wd but the forum said off road and 4by4 lol. My question is if I was to put 8 inch coils on with 6 inch brackets would give me additional lift and be able to align it decently rather than put a body lift on. Iv seen posts saying that using 6 inch springs on the 4” lift hole on the drop bracket helps camber. I wonder if I used 8” lifted springs on the 6” bracket hole would work the same way.

The Skyjacker brackets have two pivot holes. The bottom hole is for the 8-inch spring.

Ya roger the two pivot holes on my drop brackets. I just wasn’t sure if the full-size bronco springs would fit and if going up to an 8 inch of spring would be Would work and be able to align it properly and if it would drive ok. It drives perfect with the 6” springs I couldn’t see another 2 inches changing it to drastically but I don’t exactjy know

Would an f150 or full size bronco coil spring fit the coil bucket on my ranger?
