Does anyone know of a manufacture that has a kit close to the old Superlift Superunner Steering kit sup1134? Or know of a place that sells something close to these shocks and setup and I can fabricate up some brackets to bolt it all up. I really want to tighten up my suspention on my truck. I have replaced and upgrade the entire front end. From pivot bushings, to ball joints, pitman arms, drag links, coil springs, coil spring buckets, everything has been replaced, even the rag joint. But I still want to tighten it up a bit more. Thanks. I have a 88 Ford Ranger 4x4. Thanks everyone.

What year 150? mid 80's? Anymore detailed info?
This is what I'm guessing, and then just make some brackets and weld it or bolt it.

Yeah....bronco graveyard should still sell 150 kits...

There are places like camburg And solo ECT....

https://www.solomotorsports.com/?make=150&model=153&year_id=176&category=224&s=&post_type=product&action=vpf-search

On a budget....maybe a HD gm idler...and a link kit from ruffstuff.

Been to solomotorsports website a few times and didn't find anything that would work for me. I've been to camburg And solo and they didn't have much either. I'll go back to gronco graveyard haven't been there in awhile. Hopefully they have something that will work. If not I'll look into the idler and the kit that you brought up from ruffstuff. Again would I be looking at a 80's 150? I'm guessing yes. I really wish that I didn't sell my lathe and my mill recently, it would of made things far more easier....... :(

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
My 97 F150 has a similar setup. Could probably get the idler arm parts from that and make a custom cross link. I’ve been thinking about that myself. I noticed the other day that one of the bushings in my Superrunner setup is splitting. I need something more heavy duty.
