Default What to do, What to do?

Hey guys and gals. I'm Matt. New here and looking for a little help.

I have this 95 ranger I bought as a work truck. Its a great little truck and i have found my self doing more and more to it as time has passed.

I just put new tires on it and now I notice it dose not seem level any more. I searched the forum but didn't really come up with an answer as to why this is or how to fix it.

Any suggestions would be great.

I also want to put the newer mirrors on it and even update the front end and add fog lights. maybe even the newer headlights as time goes on.


Thanks for your help on the subject

Matt

you can lift the front up by cranking the torsion bars. The mirrors are easy to install. i bought brand new OEM mirrors from www.jcwhitney.com for 40 bucks each. To replace them you have to take the door panels off and there are 3 bolts holding the mirror on. just take the nuts off and put the new mirror on and put the nuts back on the studs on the mirror and put your door panel back on. takes about 10 to 15 minutes to do.

ooops....i just now realized you dont have torsion bars...you can get a front leveling kit to raise the front end up

Thanks for The info on the mirrors, Ill go look at them.

I looked at the leveling kit. The guy at the shop that works on it told me it would make the truck handle bad and steer bad if I did the leveling kit.

Any one used these and have any feedback?
