i have a 2007 of course ranger its the sport model and i have torsion bars i have found a lowering kit for the truck but im not sure if it will work ive never lowered a truck with torsion bars only raised them http://www.gcustoms.com/product_info/category_id/5/subcategory_id/138/products_id/11257/ thats the kit would this work or would i need to look somewhere else?
any help would be great
I think you should have no problem with that, it's DJM products, you will install this, and get the result that they tell you.
If you needed to modify something with the torsion bar, it should be in the kit.
I've buy DJM products, and the quality realy surprised me, and i'm 100% satisfy.

the kit you listed, only the rear portion will work, the coils wont, but looks like you can loosen the torson bars to lower the front end the 2 inches you need

hydroxy from explorerfurom
It handles great. I had a friend w/ a 2000 mustang driving with me one time and he said my explorer had less side-to-side sway then his mustang. Have to watch out for pot-holes though, as you can bottom out over big ones. Your offroading capabilities will be that of a car, so if you plan on going offroad, dont lower it. Gravel and dirt roads should be alright though.
other than that i duno, the explorer shares the same torsion bar suspinsion as a ranger, you can
some other just doing a search
other options i have seen is people added air bags, probally could get a djm lower control arm and fab(or get) a coil bucket similar to the 98+ coil sprung suspinsion, then run a coil, alot of work no matter which way you go

DJM parts for the 2wd coil spong ranger will not work on the front of a torsion ranger they are totally different suspensions
