And then I would be responsible when your balljoints and tie rod joints explode.

That would be ok since the 4.0 is nearly the same weight as a 302, but the real question is, why would anyone want to **** up their suspension geometry with a coil lift kit. lol. I had to learn the hard way. And these coils aren't for pre-98 Rangers so you wouldn't be able to run them

Went and renewed the Tag. Now I have an ugly orange sticker on the back. And saw a 94ish red ranger, lifted with a rollbar and a Decepticon symbol on the front. Looked good, cept the symbol.

Took the splash guards off, cleaned the inside, and looked for some spindle lifts!

I replaced the rear output seal on the transmission, and finished setting up my Focus floor shifter.
