Why is that stopping you? You can run c-o's and spindles on your 2wd edge.......there's a few already running that setup over at another Ranger forums.

Well i wanted to get the coilovers first cause i hate the ride of the tbars.

Then if the lift wasn't enough I'd throw on some spindles.

you'd get the same amount of lift as you would by cranking bars. It is'nt a ride height change coil-overs do for you, it's the ride itself. IDK why people keep on saying Coil-overs on a Superlift = 6" lift.

Even with my tbars "uncranked" the ride is bouncy. Seems like my rear suspension does all the articulating.

So being stock height i should get 2" from the coils right?

Then some spindles could get me another 3" to get to 5" total.

Or i can adjust them down to around 4" for better ball joint angles...

they've got tons of adjustability. you can have them setup for exactly stock, setup for lower than stock, set up for higher than stock. etc.....they're really adjustable and all the other threads about coil-overs here or on other ranger forums(where it's covered alot more) will tell you that.

Putting nice shocks on the truck will help that crap 'bouce' or whateve. But...coil-overs are the single best mod you can do suspension wise on these trucks. Hands down.

Exactly why I'm not happy about not being able to order a coil over kit.

Are there any others out there?

no.....just wait it out til he gets shocks in. no big. or just talk to Nick and see what the ETA is that he'll be accepting orders when he has product to sell. It's good he's letting you know this....anyone else would backorder it and you'd be waiting weeks and making calls all the time and them always telling you it's backordered.

Just wait it out...

Don't mean to side track but are the sprintech spindles any good?

I don't do much, if any, hard off-roading. Just wondering what would be ideal.

Springtech makes Fabtech and doesctch(spelling?) spindles....you're getting the same exact product for cheaper if you buy from Springtech.
