Default Going to attempt leveling

However seems like I'm really raked out good...3" lower in the front. This "could" be due to the 2010's "Heavy duty suspension" option.

will try the T bar crank, but before getting under their any opinions on how well this will work...seems most are getting 1.5-2" out of messing with the stock t bar...just kind of want to stay away from going to "maxed out" t bars....

when I get a chance of no rain when I'm off I'll make the attempt and report back

Really need to do the prekey mod. Replacing torsion keys with keys from a 2008 and later

You would get better results.

this is becoming a pain in the ass......finding a "donor" ranger that is.

First question..anyone here have a set of 2007 or like keys? or want to trade as you wanna drop your ranger in the front willing to do a swap if you are...

2) anyone know if any of the "aftermarket" torsion bar keys are of the same quality and "lift" as the pre 08 keys.......not looking to get huge lift...just level the front with the rear is the name of my game.

3) going to try the stealership on their prices....but already feel the anal insertion about to happen from them....

umm...if your sig is right it appears that you have an XLT and that has coil springs not torsion bars so you might want to try another option.

yeah I know, but finding one is another story LOL


will check out the stealership and see what they charge for NOS parts...

or see if any of the after market keys are indexed the same (not looking for lift per se) just levelin' out

order keys off of ebay. they will be the same as the stock keys.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-10...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/00-04...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/3-TORSION-BAR-LI...item1c1acc2604

just don't crank the shit out of these keys get your level with 3" make sure that your cv's are not at a stupid angle and call it good. i would put money that the aftermarket keys are cheaper than OEM ones from ford.

Yeah man, no doubt those keys are WAY cheaper. Thanks for the links those are definatly good deals but the reason I like the pre keys is because i can pretty much level it with out adding hardly if any at all stress to the cb's and ball joints which I think those after market keys would do. If im right I'm pretty sure i may as well level it by maxxing the t bars which is pretty much how those after market keys work...
