Lowering question..
Okay, I really hate to sound like a newb....but seeing as I am, I feel it's okay to have questions.

I still don't have a ranger yet, but will in the next few weeks and I'm pretty sure I want to lower it...however I'm confused as to what you all mean by like 2/2 , 2/3, 4/5 etc...

is that in terms of inches front/back? sorry if I sound really stupid.

Re: Lowering question..
A little bit of advice, if you want to go lower make sure you don't get a truck with torsion bars

Re: Lowering question..
i believe edges have torsion bars, basically look at your front suspension and see if you have coil springs or bars

Re: Lowering question..
Oh okay! Thanks you two!
Just to know - how much CAN you lower one with torsion bars? And how do you go about doing that? Is it difficult?

Re: Lowering question..
Not much. Its very difficult from what I hear.

Re: Lowering question..
crank your torson bars down, i think you can get 2-3 inches

Re: Lowering question..
For ease of lowering just don't get a Torsion bar truck lol you'll thank us later!

Re: Lowering question..
IF you get the torsion bars you have to flip the keys. And get a flip kit for the rear. A guy on rps had that and it was dropped quite a bit.

Re: Lowering question..
If you want to drop a torsion bar truck, as stated before, get ready for a lot of work. But IMO, when it's done they look awesome.
