Hello. New to this web forum, but old Ranger owner.

I have owned my 1995 Ford ranger for 20 years. nothing special about it, but it is a Ranger XL 2WD, 2.3 litre 5 speed, regular cab long box, with 330,000 km.
I increased the rear suspension by adding 2 extra leafs, and would really like to increase the front suspension to level it now, but it is difficult to find parts for 1995.

Only recently have I begun to repair esssential parts.

Only major problem that I have had was the Clutch master/slave cylinders being replaced.

I am currently replacing the leaf spring shackles, Daytime Running light module, EGR valve, and various body panels (due to rust).

I also own a 1996 Mazda B2300 with the exact same powertrain (but now with a blown head gasket), with 155,000 km. debating on whether or not is worth it to replace the gasket, or just keep the truck for spare parts for my Ranger.

I would post a pic of the ranger, if you do not mind viewing white paint/rust.

Post pics please. We like pics. The more the better. It also helps you keep track of what you start with and where you end up.

Why not both?
