Hi, new to the forum. Seen it many times. Anyways, I have a 1999 Ranger 4x4 and it's already got 5 inches of lift. I want to lift the rear another 1-2 inches. Not with any more blocks either. I was thinking if I put springs that had more of an arch to them. That would definitely do it. Where would I find such springs? Or if you have any other ideas...?

You can buy lift springs, you can go to a spring shop and get them to re-arch yours, or you can re-arch your own. There was someone on here that adapted a 16 ton pipe bender stand with some wheels and a hydraulic jack to bend his springs. IIRC there is a picture in the homemade tools thread.

i think i found a set of springs, one for each side, that will lift it another 1" and a half or so.

Another option is longer shackles (such as the BellTech 6400). This should give you close to another 2" lift, but won't stiffen the ride up as much as higher-arch springs.
