ah man ford discontinued torshion bars after 98 for any truck unless you have it done in the dealership except newer specialty trucks like for example the raptor.Before 98 only f150's were allowed to get them.oficially in 1993 factory t-bars were discontinued for rangers,but not never installed unless in dealership past 1992 only a handfull of rangers received t-bars from 86 to 92.For all who question any of this have fun,search ford motor trend anouncement arcives for my true ford ranger history.

Sorry bout your luck but you need to start looking up your info somewhere else. Your truck has coil springs.

Also you should read this:Ranger owes its smooth ride (the ride is even smooth in 4WD models, no mean feat) to a rigid frame that cuts down on vibration. Four-wheel drive Rangers (and 2WD models with the Trailhead Group package) have front torsion-bar suspensions with rear single-stage leaf springs. Two-wheel-drive models have coil springs in the front and two-stage leaf springs in the rear. The torsion-bar suspension is smooth, and the coil-spring suspensions are smoother still. The rack-and-pinion steering found on all Rangers is responsive and precise.

I never said my truck was better than yours. Was simply telling you that you got your facts mixed up.

Anyways what's your deal man? Every time I've seen you post it's ended in you argueing and calling people names.

you gotta lay off whatever your on, t bars came around in rangers in 98, and theyre STILL putting them in the 2010 "sports". your truck has coil springs and i beams, not torsion bars. my truck has i beams and coils aswell.

====================================
BS youngster! You either need to learn to "puff, puff, pass" or lay off the crack, cause its got you so constipated that shits runnin out your ears & mouth!

The ONLY V8 Ranger ever produced was the F100/F150 Ranger Edition:
1968 F100 Ranger






Fords answer to the S10 in 82, ie Ranger, has NEVER had anythin larger than a 4.0L and SAH didn't have no 5spd automatic in 87.

82-97 Ranger where twin I beams, 98up are upper & lower coil springed control arms, with the EXCEPTION of the 2wd Edge/Tremor/Sport/and all 4X4, these models have upper & lower control arms with adjustable torsion bars.

So take your WA attitude somewhere's else and YES, I can prove it!

I hess EVERY 4x4 Ranger after 98 was done in dealership then because no matter what you read, Rangers DO have Torsion bars 98+ 4x4s.

I have an 06 and my mine has TORSION BARS.



See the little bar behind the front tire. That my friend is a TORSION bar, and no it was NOT Dealer installed. NO Ranger before 98+ had torsion bars.

I really dont know where you get your info, but you might want to check elsewhere.

and see those things behind YOUR front tires, they are coil springs, not torsion bars:
