Default Drop Braket

Having a hard time finding one. My 1990 Ranger (2wd) has a 2" lift all around. The front uses "hockey pucks" under the springs, but doing so set the camber out so that the wheels have a slight V angle to them (positive camber? ) when looking at them from the front. Like this
\_\ -------------/_/.

The previous ownder suggested a drop braket kit. He said it will solve the camber issue and also give me a little bit more lift. I'm having trouble finding the kit though. Could anyone point me in the right direction to find one?

The problem with lifting the earlier rangers was the beam length would cause that.
I dont know too much about this issue specifically, but I can offer some direction, hopefully the one you want.

Default Re: Drop Braket

Well i found out I can either do drop brackets, or save up and buy/fabricate some bent beams instead. Might go for the second option since I eventualy want to turn this into a prerunner and I would have to have bent beams anyway.
