Thanks! Its been a long haul but these projects are never really finished haha.
I am staying away from the "kinker."
Oh also picked up a 1piece aluminum drive shaft, installed new u-joints. you can kind of see it in the previous pictures.
I got lucky and now can rent a garage with lift down the street from work so progress is ramping up!
Last weekend I removed the 4inch lift beams. (they are up for sale btw, accepting offers!)
Im going to clean up the frame and install fabtech "longtravel" kit which uses the 93+ dual piston brake calipers.
Put coils and tires on to test fit and ride height. Wheels are off a jeep Comanche, love how they look but the offset makes for some rubbing
Dont love how high it sits in the front. I used the coil spring calculator and estimated the orange ones are round 550ppi. Purchased some Skyjacker 136 coils to lower front height and soften the ride. The Skyjackers are 1.5 inches lower and around 440ppi according to this site. Fox Shocks also on the way!
Where did you find that old school Fabtech lift at? Have not seen that kit in years. Knew some folks in the past with that exact Fabtech on thier Rangers, and they performed great. That was a excellent kit they made. Glad to see your using it.
