Go to 4wheelparts.com
Find a store near you and plan on spending some hard earned money. They will help you to pick the BEST solution for your needs... springs, shocks,bushings and so on...
you can install new suspension if you have the right tools... but it is probably easier to have it done...No headaches
also... air springs?.. you may need some extensive fab work..I would definately go to 4 wheel parts to find what you need

SOURCE: will '89 Ranger leaf springs fit a '99 Ford Ranger 4x4?

Measure the distance from bolt to bolt, and to the center. If they match then, they match, if not you will have to check the numbers with fords tolerances to avoid an axle wrap. But it should fit, maybe just a little stiffer of a suspension from the 4x4.

How do I remove a broken leaf spring?


You will need to jack up the truck by the frame on the side that has the broken spring not by the axle. Then when the tire is off the ground loosen the leaf retention bolts that hold the spring to the axle remove the broken spring and replace it. Side note have a good set of jack stands to support the vehicle while you work on replacing the broke spring never trust a jack they can give away at any time.

How to change spring


You will need to identify the vehicle and whether it is a front or rear spring you wish to change. Now in some cases, a better Spring shop, actually can make and install the spring at their shop for a competitive price of the spring alone.

The shipping weight, if you have to pay for transportation, plays a role in the cost of doing it yourself. You can get used springs from a Salvage yard and often they are 1/2 the price of a new one.

You will need several jacks to do a rear leaf spring change and you may have problems pulling the mounting bolt past the frame. For coil springs you need a spring compressor to get clearance between the "A" arms. Strut type springs need a spring compressor too.

Remember that when replacing a broken spring, the new part will almost always be longer or arched more than the worn part. So jack accordingly.

Please rate my info and I hope it is helpful.

Front leaf springs shackles keep folding up and droping the front end


You will need to replace the front leaf springs or have them set and tensioned. This entails a specialist heating and bending the springs to their original shape. While you have the leaf springs out replace the shackle bushes. Depending on your budget now would be the time to buy those Old Man Emu suspension parts you've been eyeing.

I put new struts on a 1996 grand prix and now the car bottoms out when i have passengers do i need to replace the leaf spring to?


Believe you have coil springs but, yes change the springs. if you carry unusually heavy loads or have some really big friends, you may want to consider getting variable rate springs.

91 Trooper leaf springs


ok what you have is just a multi leaf leaf spring. in the middle of the leaf where the axle should be a bolt that holds them together. you need to check the U bolts that hold the axle to the spring. there has to be a reason it moved . check the leaf spring for a broken leaf. i would recomend getting new Ubolts. and when you put it back together make sure you use the bolt that holds the leaves together as the center .
if ya need more help just let me know
if ya could snap a pic if you are having problems and send it i might be able to be more of a help.

Bouncing rearend


Some leaf springs, when removed causes a bounce in the rear end when you forget to put them all back. You should try adding some leaf springs recommended from the manufractuer, or just look for the same parts from another model just the same as your vehicle. (tip from experience: match the leafs, and where they go.) for example: the small one will go with the other small one. I used the 2nd largest leafs and added them to my rear end, so instead of just one leaf stock there was two. if this solves your problem let me know.
