I wondered if anyone has particular experience with a make of kit, whether good or bad. I'm only thinking 1" in front and then enough to level the rear...which might be 2-3".


Thanks!

i havent dropped a beamed ranger but i did slam my 03 with the djm kit and it was very nice! you will just need coils for the front and you could flip the rear shackles for close to 2' drop in the rear. hope this helps a little.

I would look for a set of Splash springs for the front if you only want 1". I think you are going to want a little more though, so I would get the 2" coils. The rear, flip the shackles and see how you like it. That'll only cost you some times and some bolts.

1" drop probably isnt worth the time or the money for an alignment. Go with the DJM 3/4 kit or the belltech 2" front coils or both.

if you buy Ibeams only go with DJM especially if there is any chance ever you may bag it or juice it. And Belltech on the 2" coils.
