If you do not understand what these guys are talking about, take a jack and put it in the middle of the truck crossmember up front and jack and it up several inches. Look at what the front tires do when you do that. The tops of the front tires will be splayed out, the bottoms in. The same thing will happen if you try to lower it, except in the opposite direction. When you lower it with just the springs, the top of the tires will tilt inward, the bottoms will splay outward. Besides not looking that great, it's bad for tire wear. The upper balljoints do have some adjustment to fix this, but not much. If you want to be safe, I would not lower it more than 1.5 inches if you want your alignment guy to be able to get it back in. The other poster said he went 2 inches, that must be really barely getting it back in.Is there an economical way to lower a b2300/ranger 1997?
Flip kit would get u 4 " just by putting springs from top to bottom.with sameRangers have never been easy or economical to lower. Going the cheap rout will usually cost more in tires and agony. The best way is to get new front spindles and an Explorer rear end. The expo rear will drop the rear about 3", then het the correct lowering spindles for the front.
But the front is more complicated to get right without chewing through tires and front end parts from exploding because they're operating at their limits. Don't get me wrong, i like the look of a lowered Ranger, when it looks rightFlip kit would get u 4 " just by putting springs from top to bottom.with same
