Default finding a coil over conversion kit for my 05 ranger edge

hi, i have an 05 edge i got in 09 and i have already done a flip kit in the back and flipped the T-bars. i'm wanting to go lower but i need the coilover conversion kit. I've look at the lowering keys but that will make it where i cant get over the speed bumps at my school. I've looked all over for a conversion kit but i cant find one.

i have a 2010, and iasked the same question, apparently we need brackets they dont make anymore, so you have to make your own and weld them on, then buy the coilovers, and iuno it is too much for me to handle right now haha, one day, one day

ridin on the edge, I know your kinda new so it can be hard to search and find exactly what you want. It takes alot of time on here to know the people, and who is good with what, and where to find info. So I wont flame on ya for not searching, I was once a "newb" as some like to call it just like other people have been so I can understand. But IMO this is one of the best threads for beginners who dont really know alot about it. http://www.ranger forums .com/f36/co...62/index8.html

and as gatsy has helped to mention its not just a bolt on thing, many things including welding, getting all the brackets, spacers, part numbers and correct parts for everything n your application can be tough. But with enough research and skill you can pull it off. Also it is not cheap, for the money you could probably do something else with the $1,000 your going to spend but it is an upgrade id like to really have. Just cant justify that money for that right now. If you need more specifics I can help, and there are a few one here that have done it and can help just as much as me and some can even alil better. But for right now, this should give you somewhere to start. thanks, Zach.

EDIT: I forgot we cant post links to ranger forum on here. But if you want the info, go over to ranger-forums and search for coil-over sadness/madness and thats the thread.
