Default Coilover Conversion Part #'s - Stock Height

Like the title says..anyone have the Fox part numbers for a coilover conversion on a stock height 4x4 Ranger? I'm looking for the numbers on the coils & springs. I've got some PM's & emails into ORW..but so far nothing.

I found everything for the setup with a superlift kit...but nothing on a stock height one.

Thanks,
Ean

Four years ago dude. Not only did he finish his Ranger build, he sold it and moved on to a Mustang...

Man I was a newb back then! haha

4 years and nobody helped me......

Thankfully since the original posting of this thread - I've done tons and tons of research & know the answers!

Hell, I don't even remember my "stock height" truck!

Checkout the "other Ranger forum" (cant get into details here) - and look for a 66-page thread called "Coilover Brackers". There is a member there (ME00Stepside) that is selling the bracket kits (+/- $300) & you supply the shocks & springs of your choice (+/- $700 if something like Fox).

It's mainly for ride quality & wont really give you any additional height. You can get about the same as what you would from a healthy t-bar crank - but that's about it (due to CV angles).

Tons of part number information is listed over in that thread - I know because I helped gather the research over the past 4+ years!
