shocks


  1. Can’t Figure This Out

    Feel like a noob for not knowing what this is but I can’t find any information online. Check the photo attached, some type of small shock but I do not know what it is or where to get replacements. I just replaced the shocks and coils with a 2” lift on my 1994 Ranger but I would like to replace...

    Rough Country vs. Skyjacker Leveling Kit

    Starting to look at leveling kits and these seem to be the front runners. I am starting to favor the Skyjacker kit since they come with shocks that I assume are tailored for the extra 1.5" lift in front but was hoping to get some input on which one you think is best. Just looking for daily...
  3. 2WD RANGER LIFT

    So I bought a max trac supsension for my 2WD 05 Ranger to give it more of an aggressive look. I have 2 4 inch lift spindles for the front and 2 2 inch lift shackles for the back. I took it to my guy and he said I needed new shocks and a sway bar. What size shocks would I need? What are good...

    03 4x4 ranger front shock questions

    Hi everyone, so I’ve had my ranger for almost four years. I’ve done a decent chunk of work and add ons. I recently upgraded my rear spring packs to the 43-871HD’s and now am installing my bilstein 5100 series shocks (though they’re meant for a RWD 4in lifted, I did the research and found the...

    2011 longer shocks?

    I've looked and found similar situations, but nothing quite right. What longer OEM shocks could I possibly use? I don't care to use "heavy duty" shocks, it already has a rough ride. I also don't care to have overpriced shocks either! Just regular OEM shocks. Here's some history: I recently...
  6. What Shocks for 5"+ drop in front?

    Hello All, I have a 02 XLT extended cab ranger that I will be lowering 5 inches in the front and 5 inches in the back. Up front I have belltech 3" drop coils and djm 2 inch drop lower control arms but need shocks and ball joints. My djm arms didn't come with balljoints installed so I need a part...
  7. Rear ranger suspension set up 15 inches, no bed cage

    Whats up guys, Found this set up on a old thread and i want to try and start it up again. Anyone have any idea how well this will ride? I want to do this with f31s, karate drop hangers, camburg shackles, 4" bump stops and limit straps. I really can't do a bed cage and can't afford cantilever...
  8. F150 shocks for Ranger?!

    Hows it going everyone? I just received my 2 inch lift coils in the mail for my 1991 Ford Ranger. I want to put newer shocks on my Ranger, and longer ones to make up for the lift. My question is whether or not the F150 shocks (not coil springs) will bolt on correctly? I know I can purchase...

    TTB Shock Valving

    I am looking at getting a set of Bilstein 5165 shocks for the front of my Bronco II and I am wondering what valving I should be shooting for. I am looking at PN 25-177473 which has a standard valving of 366/240. I am going to be running some RE 1310 springs (4.5" XJ springs), which, according...
  10. Identifying and Purchasing Rear struts 99 Ranger

    Firstly this is my daughter's mother's truck. I don't have access to it until Saturday, when I hope to do some quick repairs. I can help ID with things I recall. Thing is I can't figure out what rear struts to buy because there seems to be like 27 different fit options depending on the...
  11. Dissolved bushing

    Hey everyone, Does hydraulic fluid dissolve bushings? I was under my truck yesterday (for other reasons) and noticed my front driver side lower shock absorber bushing is deteriorated/dissolved. Seems like some sort of fluid has leaked onto it and reacted with it. I can only assume it's...
  12. Shocks for a 3" lift?

    I am looking for some shocks for my 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 XLT extended cab 6ft bed style side with a 3" lift. When i lifted it i didnt change the shocks and now the ride is awful. Any suggestions for reasonably prices shocks for a 3" lifted ranger?
  13. 98 3.0l 3"lift

    Hey guys, got a 98 ranger 2wd 5 speed.....I have done a 3" spindle lift on the front and 2" shackle w/ 2" block kit and its time for new shocks ( currently have lift shocks from fabtech) and was curious if I did a 2" coil in the front would that improve my ride quality with maybe a bigger...
  14. Front suspension tuning

    So pretty happy with my rear set up. Explorer 8.8, ex leafs, flip kit, djm longer shackles, factory ex trac bars, stock ex sway bar. Sits just how I want it. The front needs to be stiffened up a bit and lowered an inch for a couple different reasons. Would adjustable shocks be the best way to go...

    Pro comp shocks?

    Here's the situation. I was looking at getting pro comp es3000 shocks. I have gone to pepboys oriley and called autozone. None of them have the shock in stock and have to special order it. I want this shock because it seems like it would have a nice ride, and could take a beating. I have a 2wd...
  16. shocks and gas tank

    I'm messing with my 87/90 Ranger 4x4. "87" stx chassis with a "90" body. 2" body lift with 31s. Ok, 87 sending unit doesnt match 90 fuel guage. can I just stick a 90 unil in the 87 tank? I would like to get a bigger tank off of something at the junk yard. Anyone have any ideas? I thought I had...
  17. Ranger suspension help

    I have a 1998 ranger with a 2" torsion crank in the front and 2" shackle spacers in the rear. I have 31" tires on rims with negative backspacing. What kind of gas shocks would anybody recommend for the front suspension. It seems nobody has any shocks listed for a lifted ranger.

    Universal Shock Hoops?

    I am currently piecing together the tubing and joints for extended rad arms, and the next thing on my list is shock mount. I checked out the f-250 shock mount mod, but I want something that can mount higher and I do not want to cut my coil bucket. I was wondering if these "Universal Shock Hoops"...
