Default 2004 Ranger Control Arm Drop Brackets

Does anyone know of a company that makes lower control arm drop brackets or upper control arm/ball joint spacers? Any help is great!! Truck specs are 2004 Ranger Edge 4x4 with IFS Suspension.

I guess that basically what you're looking for is what comes in the Superlift kit. There are drop brackets for the diff and new knuckles.
A while ago Trailmaster made a Ranger lift kit that used ball joint spacers instead of new knuckles but they don't make that kit any more.

Only kit avaliable now for 98+ 4x4's is the 4" Superlift.


Rancho was/is coming out with about a 3" coilover lift......debuted last summer...havn't seen anything on their site or in the Ranger world about its release at all...

That Rancho Kit looks pretty nice. I bet it will be expensive though.
