A bracket kit is still being made in batches on another website, so its hit or miss if he is producing at any given time.

Read the past few pages - I've posted the contact info multiple times.

Would this kit would work for a hybrid with the super lift? A 4 inch lift would be much nicer with coilovers than torsion bars.

Yes - you use longer coilovers - but, they don't make the kit talked about in the originals pages & starting topic anymore....

Per my previous PM response to you as well as the last few pages here - go to the other Ranger forum (Ranger - Forums . com) & search for a 75+ page thread.

A member there (ME00Stepside) is selling the bracket kit & you supply your own coilovers and other items.

I've been posting research information on the coilover topic over there for the past 3+ years.

No there's welding involved and some other work. They don't manufacture them anymore either. A member on another forum makes the brackets I think though.

Just answered your own question. If you have Torsion Bars, the coil over conversion brackets will work.

Is there a benefit to using a superlift and this setup? How much lift does it give you?

As I said just the page before...........Post #100 of this thread.

The conversion itself isn't a lift kit. It's for ride quality. By using the standard size coilover you can get about the same adjustment range as a torsion bar crank could give - but that's it.


Superlifted truck vs. Superlifted truck w/ coilovers = Same height, but the coilover version will ride much better.
Stock truck vs. Stock truck w/ coilovers = Same height, but the coilover version will ride much better.
