Default Alignment for lowered 2002 ranger XLT

So, I am buying my fiance's brothers 2002 ranger 2wd XLT that he lowered wit a lowering kit, but now the alignment is really out of wack. Is this something I can just take to the Ford dealer down the street from my house and have them do?

I would assume so or a cheaper route would be a tire store/ they could also do it and I bet it be cheaper than a ford dealer

I would find out how it was lowered first before going to an alignment shop, if it has cut coils are way to short it will be unalignable. I would check into that first.

We will find out tomorrow. I am putting the djm shackles back on and taking it a guy I hear is good with lowered vehicles. Then have to get the exhaust made.

I know there are other people out there with a DJM 4/5 lowering kit, what do you have for exhaust? I have a Gibson Duel exhaust that I had on the truck before hand and the pipes coming out of the muffler to the back won't fit now.

The part you want is called a camber adjusting cam. I got mine at NAPA. Also, I don't know what to say about the exhaust, mine still fits. (flowmaster/custom piped)
