Default Need help with struts.

Looking for offroad struts that will fit my 1998 coil spring 2wd ranger. I do not have torsion bars. So the struts have different bottom bracket mounting ends at the bottom that are angled differently an was told people couldn't put them on. Really want rancho Rs5000's but will only fit for the back but not the front. Any help is appreciated guys thanks.

I am not convinced that you have struts on that truck. Are you talking about shocks?

2wd would have front coil overs, would it not?

Coil springs not coilovers.

im in the same market as you and sadly the RS500s wont fit. rancho doesnt make front shocks for the 2wd.
