That is the right camber bushings and nitro slammers is what I have on my truck. I'm very happy with them

Alright cool.

Honestly would they help a lot with it just being lowered 2 inches? I'm sure they are worth the money, but I was just wondering since it's gonna be lowered that much if a regular type shock would be good enough. If that's what you recommend though I can do it.

Also, any thoughts on the western chassis ds2 drop shocks? That and the toxic are the 2 styles recommended for stock to 2" lowering.

Or possibly the bell tech nitro drop 2

Ok, how does my cart look now? The belltech shocks say 3-5 inch lowering on summit, and 2-5 inch lowering on andy's auto sport. Would they be ok on my truck? It is the same part number and everything, belltech #8013. I think I finally have a winner!


----------

Just looked on bell techs website, it says 2-5 inch lowering. So I should be good?!?! Lol, damn shocks and my uncertain-ness.

Leo, GL with the drop. Watch out for those leaf spring shackle bolts as well, mine were a bear to remove, and my truck has no rust. Had to end up throwing some heat on em before they would budge. Without the heat I doubt I could have ever gotten them out without cutting them.

Thanks man! Ok I will keep that in mind. Wow ok. They must have been on there pretty good. My friend will probably do most of the work but I'm going to try and help him if I am off work. I want to do it myself but between me not having room/tools to do it and working a lot, I'll need some help. But I'm gonna try to be there she he does it so I can learn a little and do some of the work myself

I had a question that I asked but it kind of got buried. About the D21's, is this something I can just go to a parts store and get? Or will they need to be ordered also?

Nope any parts store has them. They are around $20 each

bump for a good, informative thread. I'm new to the Ranger world and am looking to do this modification within the next 1-2 months. Since I use my Ranger to haul my race bike around, I want a more aggressive lowered look.
