View Full Version : drop spindles for rangers?
12-11-2007, 04:35 PM
Is there a company that makes drop spindles for rangers? I've been searching on-line and can't find shit! A kid I work with wants to drop his 95 ranger and I thought spindles would be cheapest and easiest but I can't seem to find any. He said he might know a kid that has some but they are off a 92 ranger, work they work on a 95? Any help would be appreciated!:dntknw:

I dont think anyone makes spindles. If anyone finds out, let me know.

If I'm not mistaken the 95 uses I beams, I know the 92 does. Look for Dropped I beams.

Good luck on finding the drop spindles, But if he knows someone that has them then yes they will work for his 95 if they are from a 92.
But the only way to drop these Rangers are with Lowering I beams or with lowering springs.
How low does he want to drop the Ranger ?

Wouldnt a 97 or older need drop i beams insted of spindles? I think they changed to a arm suspension in 98

He doesn't want to go that low, maybe drop it about it 3" or so. I'm surprised no one makes drop spindles. They make them for all kinds of shit just not rangers!

With the lowering I beams do you need lowering springs to? I know nothing about lowering these trucks, I usually lift em!

No actually the beams will give him the lowered stance he is looking for. And out back he can just flip the shackles.
He will however need a good set of lowered shock to help compliment everything.
And yeah it does suck that no one make a spindle, heck it would be great if they did, and all of the bagged guys would just about buy them in a heart beat.

92 and 95 spindles ARE diffrent. in the way the brake calipers mounts.
95-97 have "bolt" on calipers,
where the 94 and older have the "slide pins" that hold the calipers on.

The ball joints for the 95 are different than the 92. Also the brake system was upgraded in 95, but it doesn't affect the i-beam itself. For future modification it might be best to buy the dream beams if he ever wants to bag it.
