Default Eibach Lowering Kit?

So why is it that the Eibach 2/4 Lowering Kit cant work for the four cylinder Rangers? is there a difference in the suspension between the
V6 and L4 models?

dont bother with that, get DJM products, theyre a hell of alot cheaper and actually works for rangers.

2 inch coils

flip kit with shackles

but you should just go 4/5 to begin with, 2/3 will get boring really fast lol

Sorry its just i used to be into modding little import four cylinder cars and Eibach has a pretty well established good reputation with me so my selection was biased to begin with, but i have another question because i went and browsed IDF. Will the Belltech 3" coils really work with my late 2004 2.3L Ranger? and what about the 3" rear flip kit from DJM it says its only for 98-02 Rangers when every other website says it will work with all models thru 2010

I use to have a DJM 4/5 kit but I had to get my money back becuz i borrowed the money from a family member and i was strapped for cash.....and i dont think i could do the 4/5 kit because of clearance issues.....the part of AR i live in has varying road conditions. one slab of asphalt can be perfect then two miles later you be driving on the most effed up crap ever. That and we've had alot of major flooding around my town because of poor drainage so riding stock has really been awesome

Ok I looked up the part number on the Belltech 3" drop coils. Belltech says they will only work till the 2003 models, would they still be able to work on a late 2004 Ranger 2WD XLT like mine? Or will I need to buy the DJM Coils?

The DJM and Belltech kits will work on all coil spring front suspension rangers from 98- present.
