Hey guys, I need some help to identify what brand lift is on my 2K Ranger 4x.
knuckle number.jpgknuckle size.jpgfront of lift box.jpgtorsion bars.jpg

Best as I can tell it is 6" lift, anyone recognize the style of the lift box? I can't find a mark on any of the parts other than the part number on the knuckle.
I am in need of a left lift knuckle as it got a bit ground off when a wheel parted from the vehicle at 60 on the highway, fortunately no other damage to my or others vehicles or persons.
Thanks
Rich

According to the tech articles, Superlift was the only lift manufacture for that style suspension until 2018. So that would seem most likely.

Maybe I'm looking at it wrong, but I don't think those are torsion bars in the last pic. More like stabilizers. Note the bolt thru both ends. Also, I see coils in the 3rd pic.

Feel like I'm missing some information...

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
It looks like a RCD.

You are correct Senornoob, the torsion bars are removed, those are coil over Bilstien.
I stumble with jargon...
What is it you feel you are missing? I'll do the best I can. 20200816_172018.jpg
I'll research with superlift and RCD.
Thanks

This is the point where I admit I don't know enough about the "newer" models to be more helpful. Sorry.
