Default Finally! I 07 Lift Kit

So, my 2007 ford ranger sport has been a real problem to find a lift kit for, with the torsion bars on the front and the leafs in the back, and I kept looking on the internet, but today I have found it. A 3 inch lift for my truck and for only $144, so for all you people who have been searching here you go! It works on 1998-2012. http://4x4.fatbobsgarage.com/ford-ex...012-p1849.aspx

It's still gunna be stiff. Shackles in the rear would help a lot. Only thing aal is good for is towing and/or carrying heavy loads

I thought those looked kinda funny. But it says 98-11. And why would they change the key design?

I'm sorry, but that's the worst 'lift' ever...People have been mocking that setup for years.

Cheap = Yes
Good = No

Get pre-06 keys for $30 and crank those bitches. Then do an a-a-l or shackle lift in back and you will have your lift for less than that and it will be better.

Those are just keys... that's not a lift. Search the forum.

OP, I already told you any lift kit for 2001+ for 2WD torsion bar rangers will fit your truck:

Got my shackles and spindles for under $300 shipped. Body lift is about the same. These are the 2 best ways to lift a 2wd for a good price.

Well, it gets the job done, I'm rolling more for appearances, and I mean with torsion keys you're not getting much better than that.

Yeah, I guess you're right, but its being sold as a kit, you can buy them individually but I like the bundle.

Torsion keys are a complete waste.

That kit, or bundle, whatever word you wish to use... is not worth money. Torsion keys are a waste of money.

Crank your torsion bars for free... or buy a spindle lift.... or both.
