Default 2000 Ford Ranger front brakes

Hello!
Bought this 2000 Ford Ranger super cab xlt, has a 3.0 v6, 10inch rear drums, 4wheel abs, and a front coil suspension. I currently need to replace the rotors, brake pads, and calipers at the front. BUT. Everywhere I’m looking for a set of the calipers, pads, and rotors together they say it’s only for the “front torsion bar suspension” but since ford decided to make millions of configurations for this truck I can’t determine what parts are going to fit my trucks front brakes for its suspension, so does anybody have a clue if the rotors, calipers, and brake pads are exactly the same between the front torsion bar suspension and front coil spring suspension for my year ranger?

Any advice would be appreciated!

First, this thread should not be in the 2019 Ranger section. There is a brake section that should get more response to your question.

The 4WD and 2WD front rotors are different. There is an exception to this with the Edge model but you have coil suspension and don't need to be concerned about that. I don't know if the calipers and pads are different between 4WD and 2WD. Your best approach is to look for a brake system for 2WD. You do not indicate it is 2WD but 4WD does not come from the factory with coil suspension.

Surprised that there are few kits available for your combination at Rock Auto but found this one. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...446377&jsn=603

Something that I do from time to time if need part verification is simply look at the existing setup, in this case probably take wheel off etc., and then look at part pictures on RockAuto.com and/or autozone.com. You can always look at different years, trim levels, 2WDvs4WD, etc. and sometimes if there are multiple variations for same trim from factory it will prompt you to choose your setup, in which case you could choose both and compare. Don't think it's ever let me down. And you can obviously do this with other parts other than just brakes.
