So after some research on others Ranger Forum.....because nobody seem to be alive here anymore... i find-out that some Ranger have come from Ford with larger size front sway bar. I got the 34mm , the same the Explorer got so i need this kit:

So double-check your sway bar size before getting new bushing.

did you print up the ES swaybar gauge and measure your sway bar?

Why - Engine size and weight GVWR.
Reasoning(s) - Sway bars transfer weight laterally to smooth out the transition of cornering or aggressive maneuvers in more flatter and linear aspects so you dont basically twist and roll a tire so to speak and or lean heavily to the outside when you go around a corner too fast and roll your high centered vehicle on top of someone waiting to turn left around the corner. So they help transfer weight to the outside wheel in a corner.
