Re: Rearend from 96 Explorer for a 91 Ranger
If you want to lower your ranger dont have to do much, if not search for a axle flip kit on ebay or ruff stuff. I am waiting on axle gears before I finish welding on new brackets. I have read on the ranger station you will need a different hose from axle to the hard line on the body, and you do not have to change master cylinder or any other stuff. It is easy to grind off old brackets, I would grind in half and knock off with a hammer,some people grind off carefully and re use brackets. I noticed mine were a lot longer from ruff stuff , should help stop axle wrap. Get all the stuff done to axle before installing, will be much easier.
