Should i go with a long or short AAL? What iv read about both seems like long is the way to go. It isnt to rough of a ride and easier install. The short ones tend to be very rough, wear/sag the stock leafs and might have to get my current leafs re-adjusted. The long leafs last longer than the short ones and are better for off roading giving you more flex. Is this true? With a AAL what will i need to have to make it work? On summit they come with the center pin but no u-bolts or leaf pack clamp.

The 2wd pockets may be smaller then the 4x4, I havent seen anyone put them on a 2wd you may look into getting some jeep coils they are a bit smaller in size.

Sas is what decided to do after getting a quote at 4 wheel parts for $1700 to replace all my front end bushings and ball joints. And I figured I could sas it for $1500 with a dana 44. After I saw the size of the damn thing I knew I could not run it full width so I looked around and decided to use a fabricated toyota axle from trail gear. I found a shop that would sas it for $2500 not including the axle.

i bought my 2006 ford ranger used and it seems to have the spindle kit lift in the front. when i went to change the front rotors the stock ones did not fit so i had to get some smaller ones that are not for my truck. now the abs is pulsating while i drive and i know its due to the wrong size rotors. does anyone know what rotors go with the spindles on my truck? please get back to me!

I want your opinion guys. So I have an 05 ranger 2wd edge. I have a 3 inch fabtech spindle with a 1 inch key in the front. And a 3 inch aal in the rear. I want to level it out and maintain ride quality. I know I can just take the 1inch torsion out but I love the look of the front. So I need to raise the rear. Should I just go with a block for the rear or a shackle? What is the best option for me ride quality wise? Or will either even effect it? Thanks all!!

I have a 2011 Ford Ranger xlt 4x4 with tbars i read that you can use a suspension lift for a 2001 for it and any models above it, is this true? i drive my truck 60% highway and 40% off road. The main reason id like to get a lift is because It makes a ranger look that much deadlier and id like to upgrade to 31" or 32" tires from my stock 29" will there be any warranty issues i have to deal with and will the gear ratio become totally F#$!ed or will it be fine with those size tires? I have also read a lot about Ready lift torsion bar keys and everyone seems to have bad things to say about them? The lift i am looking at is a 98-2001 ford ranger 4" suspension lift from super lift again will this work on my truck?

If you just want to run 31, 32 crank up the T-bars. On a side note doesnt the 2011 have the stabilization/ rollover stuff on it? But i dont see why a 01 up t-bar lift for the same model wouldnt work they may have changed a few things but not by much.

Yeah it has the roll over, stability and traction control i talked to a sales person/ technician at superlift and they said that the 98-01 4' suspension lift wont work with 2011 Ford rangers that have the stabilization/rollover control on it. And that if you would like to disconnect all that stuff there could be serious electrical implications. Thanks for the Help Blkranger if you hear of anyone finding a suspension lift that work on 2011 Rangers or the best way to get 3-4" of lift please let me know. I am also wondering if there will be any irregular wear on my cv joint and other parts if i go with the Torsion key lift kit from ready lift? or if you have heard anything bad happening with this lift kit?

I couldve swore 07 was a T-bar set up but anyways yes there is but you will only find a leveling kit that is 1.5 in. Take out the 3in block and put a 2in or so.
