Here is a list of options to level (lift) the front of your Ford Ranger 1-2 Inches:


Aftermarket 2-Inch Spacers:

No Metal-On-Metal Contact – Daystar uses Polyurethane material in its Leveling Kits for a reason: It’s an insulator. It absorbs the Noise, Vibration, and Harmonics (NVH) that come from the suspension and avoids transmitting them to the passenger compartment.

These fit the 1983-1997 Ford Ranger, and 1984-1990 Ford Bronco II.

These are offered from Daystar.

Factory Spacers:

Ford has used a metal factory spacer in the F-150, and many enthusiasts have used them in their Ranger and Bronco II for lift.

These will work on 1983-1997 Ford Ranger, and 1984-1990 Ford Bronco II.

Rough Country offers a 1.5 inch leveling kit for the the 1989-1997 Ford Ranger. 


Torsion Bar Keys:

Vehicles equipped with torsion bars have a certain amount of adjustment built into the factory system. This adjustment takes place via a bolt that indexes on a torsion key attached to each torsion bar. Aftermarket keys claim to change the indexing to allow you to get lift without adding as much energy and force to the torsion bars than if you cranked the bars with the factory keys. But they may also allow you to crank higher than the stock key which could start wearing out CV’s and balljoints.

Also, some manufacturers claim that their keys are 25% stronger than the factory cast keys, and that the cast keys could break over time from the added force from cranking the torsion bars.

Aftermarket keys for the Ford Ranger are offered by:
