  2. Front Passenger Side Brake Hose Rubbing Tire During Left Turn

    Hey everyone, I bought a 97 Ranger Rebel in 2020 and have been fixing it up slowly over the past couple years.

  5. Vibration/grinding noise

    Hi, I've got a 1987 Bronco II. It's a 2 wheel drive. It runs and drives well. When I bought the truck. It had a pretty bad grinding noise when I would go from stop at a red light to take off.

  8. Brake System Compromised by Power Steering Fluid

    I'd like to start off by saying, I know I'm an idiot for not checking the bottle first. I accidentally added power steering fluid to the master cylinder in my 97 Mazda B4000. I emptied what I could from the Master Cylinder as soon as I realized my mistake and topped it with brake fluid. That...
  9. 7.5 to 8.8 swap brake reuse?

    Hey guys, Does anyone know whether the 10" drum brakes from the old (2002) 7.5" axle can be reused on an 8.8 31-spline axle out of an FX4 Level-II? My drum brakes are in good shape and if I didn't have to bleed the brakes it seems like the job would be significantly easier... I heard the 8.8"...

  15. New front axle: Same brakes?

    Hi everyone! I'm working on collecting parts and information to do a 4x4 conversion on my 2002 Mazda B3000 DS (2wd). I have torsion bar suspension already, so I'm planning on salvaging a Dana 35 SLA to use as the front axle (hopefully a 98-00 so I can run manual hubs), but I'm not clear on how...

    Hello, all. I'm new to the forum, as I just picked up my first Ranger last weekend. It's a 2wd, reg. cab, 5 speed, 9" drums, 1999. The biggest issue (so far!) is that the parking brake cable that runs along the driver's side of the vehicle is slack and the parking brake does not engage. I've...
