Lightbulb How to install Coil Spacers: Walk Through

Okay so I'm making this because every site that I went on wasn't very clear on how to install them on a ranger so here is my best explanation

STEP 1) Place jack under truck and begin to raise up


STEP 2) Take wheel off


STEP 3) Take 1 1/8 deep well socket and take nut off the inside of the coil


STEP 4) Place coil compressor around coil and tighten


STEP 5) Place jackstand under frame and drop jack


STEP 6) Undo shock mount, and with a little work the coil should come out.


STEP 7) Place Coil spacer in (In my case I used washers)


STEP 8) Now reverse the order in which you started



Hopes this helps!

Last But not least: The final product

Where exactly did you stack those washers? Was it under where the shock bolts into the axel?

I believe so. Im pretty sure you'd need an alignment if that's what you're getting at.

The washers stack right on the bolt holding the coil spring seat in place. Under the coil seat.
