Re: 1993 Ranger Off Roading

Your truck doesnt have t-bars. You have TTB. Also your truck doesnt have a track bar, which is on straight axles. T-bars are Torsion bars on 98+ trucks.

FWIW, 3rd gen 4x4s came with 15x7 wheels.

Re: explorer 8.8 swap

Stock pinion angle is 6.5 degrees positive with the leaf spring seats set at 0 degrees. Shock mounts are set at 40 degrees with pinion at 0 degrees. Use the degree finder on the pinion flange.

Re: I have a Add a leaf question

Dont ever re-use u-bolts. When torqued down properly, they stretch, in turn making them weak/brittle ones they are removed. You can never torque them down properly again. They WILL break and you'll...

Re: I have a Add a leaf question

Yea, as long as they're 2.5" long and 2-3 inches shorter than your main leaf, you'll be fine. Stick with a leaf around .25-.5 inches thick. It'll give you about 1-2 inches of lift. You will need...

Re: 1995 Ball joints

You dont always need a bushing but its a good idea to get one. They're a PITA to change though.

Hangers are simple though. Just grind the rivets off the hanger and bolt the new one back on.

Re: Superlift Guys... Need some quick help

Take a driveshaft out of a 3rd gen Ranger/explorer and you'll be good to go. As long as it has a double cardon shaft, you'll be fine. Its a hell of a lot cheaper than buying the superlift shaft which...

Re: Just finished spindle lift have one big problem

Yea get it aligned to correct the camber problem and they'll fine tune the toe on it as well I'm sure your caster is off as well.

Re: Just finished spindle lift have one big problem

It's fairly easy to fix in your driveway. Any alignment shop does exactly the same thing except they mark a line in the tire and measure it. All the knowledge you need to know is the 1/16-1/8" toe IN
