  1. 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?

    Just an idiot teenager who ruined his truck...

    I apologize in advance for writing a novel on here but hopefully most of the information is helpful in finding my problem. If not, I'm sure it will at least help explain why things are the way they are on my truck. The short version: I was an idiot teenager when I did the work. Basically, I got...

    Putting it all together, a suspension idot.

    Ok, here's the basics: I'm mechanically minded. I do all my own maintenance and modifications to the motorcycles I own, my son races motocross and I'm the acting mechanic for his bikes as well. I've done a large number of electrical modifications to cars and trucks over the years and I'm...
  5. 1998-2005 Roush anti-sway bar kit ~$45

    I am always looking for good deals and discovered that Hillbank Motorsports in Irvine CA bought the entire remaining inventory of Roush sway bar kits and is closing them out for ~$45. Included is a 1.25 front bar, a .75 rear bar and all of the hardware. If the roll resistance is indeed to the...
  6. Low Ride/Air Ride 2008 Sport

    ok guys. this is the project. I am hoping some other torsion owners want to do the same thing so we can make this happen. I will do it without community support, but it would be nice to save a bit and have higher chance of success if there is a group effort. I want to have a plush low ride...
  7. Front sway bar-to-radius arm bushings

    I’ve been trying to find replacement front sway bar bushings for my 86 Ranger 4x4. It seems older Rangers like mine have 2 sets of bushings on the front sway bar: one set mounting it to the frame and a second set mounting it to the radius arm (and no links to speak of:icon_confused:). I can...
  8. 94 2WD vs Curb

    So the other day I had a blowout and clipped a late model Cherokee then hopped a curb. Both front wheels went over the curb. Popped the drivers side front tire. Had it towed home and put "new" tires on it. Front wheels now appear to be both toed inward like this if it makes scene /=\ Truck pulls...
  9. 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"...
  11. SAS or Superlift

    Okay guys I got a 2006 Ford Ranger Sport, 4bi with a 3 inch body lift and I want to put 35"s under it. Best bet would be to do? Would I be able to fit 35"s if I put Superlift's 4" lift in my truck with the body or would it be best to SAS the truck. I can afford both and do both easily as my...

  13. Swapping coil spring front end with torsion bars

    So I'm working at building my 07 Ranger. My question is; Can I swap my coil spring front end with a torsion bar front end from an 02 without any fab work? I'm trying to build in stages so this will allow me to put my tires, fiberglass, and bumpers on while deciding on which suspension I want to...

    Rear end skips sideways on bumps

    Why's my Ranger's rear end always trying to skip to the right on bumps? My theory was bad shocks, combined with the effect of having a slightly shorter axle shaft on the right. I changed the shocks, all 4 of them, took it down a crappy back-road, and it rides better but still gets sideways on...
  15. Hey Folks

    Justin here, bought an '89 Ranger 2.3, 2WD a while back. Been busy doing some fixing on it. Does a basic Ranger just drive this funky or is there something else? Front end kinda hops over to the side on bumps. I've put new tires, shocks (Bilsteins), wheel bearings, track arm bushings, I beam...

  17. suspension rook

    Ok here's the deal, I had a 96 ranger and after a major motor defect and baby discovery I got rid of it. It already had suspension done but I did motor, cab, bed cage and lights, fenders, bed, hood, bumpers. I just bought a wreaked 94 mazda b2300 with a bad motor for $50 off a friend and he did...

    Squeaky Suspension??

    Alright so I've got a 1998 Ranger Splash 2wd with front coil springs. It has this annoying squeak in the front end when I drive down the road. When I bought it about 4 months ago the guy put in brand new suspension as it was previously slammed. I've had it up on a lift and looked at everything...

    Front end squeak

    Hello Folks, I've got a '98 Mazda B2500 2WD and have been getting lots of squeak from the front passenger side. At first I thought it was my stabilizer bar link (it had snapped), so I put a new one on. It didn't stop the squeak. The sound only comes when the truck is bouncing back 'up' after...
