Default Lowering by just flipping rear hangers?

I have searched for some pictures, but i cant find any pictures that just have the rear flipped. Is it alright to do this? If so, how does it look?

Thank you.

Search for posts started by me. The last time I put up pics on here with it, it was lowered only with the hangar flip.


If it wasn't early as hell in the morning and not having slept yet, I'd bring up the picture myself. I may just do that later anyways... Depends on if I remember to do so.

My '89 Ranger XLT sat absolutely level with the rear hangars flipped. I also lost 4"s of travel between the axle and the frame ....potholes make it bottom out now.....

Don't worry about what Doorgunner said. Your truck is 11 years younger than his and every truck since '93 has sat higher in the rear than the others.

Flipping hangars would do your truck nicely.

I was wonderin about that.......no.....not ignoring me--I know that's good advice.....I'm talkin bout the newer models having more travel, making it a smooth ride after flipping the hangers.....
