Default I don't have a Ranger, my dad does.

Hey guys, I'm from southern, OH. I intend on buying a Ranger after the first of the year, but am currently joining up for my dad to ask some questions.

He has two rangers, ones an 88 or 89, and the other is a 92. On his 92 Ranger(V6, 2WD) on the front, the part that comes up from the frame, and the spring and shock mounts to that, it rusted in two and broke, at about the 2 o'clock position. Can you buy this part as a replacement? If so whats it called. Can it be welded? I know it can, just don't know if it would be safe to run it like that. I will get a pic sometime soon, if someone happens to have a picture of what i am talking about, post it up so i can see if we are on the same page.

Please give me a little help for him, I have googled my heart out and have found some parts that look similar to what I am talking about, but they are for different Fords, and for the back, not for his application.

Oh, and the Ranger I plan on getting will be one that looks like the 2000 Ranger, maybe extended cab. I believe that body style was from 98-2000, correct?

Thanks for response, but no, I believe the part comes up from under the edge of the frame, and comes up over the shock/spring, and the shock/spring mounts to that.

Ranger110, I don't know, I would need to see a pic, I am going to go to my dads tomorrow, so I will take a picture of it.

Upper shock/coil mount. Yes they're available brand new or go used at a junkyard. check out lmctruck.com for new.

What you posted isn't an a-arm....it's a radius arm.

beam trucks dont have A arms, they have radius arms that mount to the beams from the frame and move up and down when the wheels travel

Here are the pictures, the first one is the drivers side, the other two are the passenger side, which is the one broke.

So is this the upper shock/coil mount which someone mentioned on the first page? And can it be fixed/welded/purchased/something?
