Default 2001 Ranger SAS

Got all the parts purchased to start the SAS. Im doing Dana30 front, because this is my DD didnt want anything full width. Im doing Coil Spring and radius arm suspesnion for the smoother ride. With 6 in lift springs. Ballistic heim joints, coil bucks, shocks. 94 Toyota steering box, tapped into hydro assist. Ill keep pics posted throughout the project. Hope this comes out how i planned.

Are you going to use cherokee lift springs with the ACOS leveling system on them? That would probably be your best bet and would give you more flex

Nah never even heard of them. I going with ajustable coil buckets. Either weld the cold in place or build a retainer to bolt it in. This is what i got.
