1998 Ranger 4cyl. manual. It's been in the family since new. It was my mother in laws truck. Never got a lot of driving. It's got like 68k miles on it. BUT, I live in Michigan, so I want to replace the front suspension. Anyone have a recommendation on front end kits?

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
Moog is probably the middle of the road as far as suspension goes. Don't know what you plan on doing with the truck, but Moog is a good place to start with prices and components.

Yeah, in the past MOOG was my baseline for suspension parts, but a local parts guy had mentioned that they had sold to someone (can't remember what company he said) and their quality was now in question.

I'm going to make it my daily driver. No crazy off road stuff, but again, I am in Michigan. Our roads are off-road.
