    Hi, explorer springs will work fine, you can use Ford Ranger hangers front and rear. I do not know if the axle pads are in the same location as stock, if not you will need axle pads (believe that axle is a 3.5" tube), and U bolts. You will also need to make up shock mounts. Ben's truck has the 8.8 installed on explorer springs so pics of his setup may help you, I believe he used ranger hangers as well. I am heading to bed so I cannot dig up part numbers right now but if you look in my truck #2 build the part numbers should be listed for the hangers. Both my builds show how I updated my trucks, one with Dakota springs and one with S10 springs. Not a bolt in but not terrible to do.

    Dave,
    I need to change spacers under my Jag front springs. Do you know if the 3 bolts that attach the lower spring cup to the lower A arm are 3/8 x24 (fine)?
