Ford78 SAS 99 Ranger build

Finally after 1 year and 8 months, i got my tiltle:yahoo: and able to drive her on the streets. Was really getting pissed but it worked out. Been done with the suspension for about 4 mount now and did a few changes in between and still have to do a few other thing, but ill update them when i get them done.
Here is the build up stage

Here is a few Changes that i made alone the way
Swaped case to get the vss sensor because the truck would not shift since i did not have one in the rear axle any more and i got a front yoke so i didnt have to get the adapter.

Changed my front rear shackle mount and changed my shackle angle too

heres a few pics the first day it came out of garage
