98-06 Ford Ranger with torsion bar front suspension 4wd and Edge Model. This special includes the lift w/ shocks and includes the front drive shaft. When lifted, the stock front driveshaft's life span is considerably reduced; expect a life of 25k to 30k miles. The Superlift replacement shaft is a more "lift friendly" dual cardan design. This kit will allow for 3-4" lift and will cost $2000 + shipping till the end of October 2009 for our back to the desert sale.
Pretty good deal wish I seen this before I ordered mine $1850 from local Trick trucks was actully only 1650 + ubolt kit for FX 4 and will have it they say next mon. and or tues, localand state taxs kill ya
but a least if there is a problem I have someone to go complain to in person,
Yeah guys...that's the cheapest I've ever seen the SL shaft for. I was getting quotes of $500-550 locally and online(plus shipping/some free shipping).
Morris, If you get a 00.5+ kit(live axle), it'll fit up to '09 and most likely '10. There's no changes up front. They've[the knuckles] got the dual caliper bolt holes on the knuckles for the two different rotor sizes and no hose dealio for the PVH hubs on 98-00's. Unsure about the rear lift working on a 2010 though.
Nick, You never called back last night did you find the U bolt kit
I apologize Stuart I must have written the phone # down incorrectly. Superlift is still out of stock but I was able to get a hold of a set of u-bolts could ship them out in 2-days. The cost of the u-bolts are $45 plus $10 shipping. Here is the size u-bolts you need I know that we had talked about you thinking of having a shop do them for you.
1/2-20 x 2.875 x 11
Thanks I am in GA now to attend my son Graduation from Basuc I will get back to you next week when I get back in town if I can not get them fabed at the local spring shop
Thanks for the Size that will help as I can have them made prior to doing the lift
keep me informed on the bracket deal we talked about I will definately be interested in
that if and when Stuart
Hey NIck Are you sure Only 11" I am measure it out to be about 12.3/4" with over all U bolt lenght of about 13 1/4" Shoot the ones i pulled off are almost 10 1/2" and the ones that came with the blocks although not for a FX4 are 11 and almost 12 over all
The parts list from Superlift lists that u-bolt as being the one provided in the kit. However if you need something longer we can get you up to a 12" for the ranger axle or you can get some made like we had talked about.
I was actually in the process of putting somethings together for the older Twin I-beam rangers, but would appreciate any help in putting it together. What would you like to see offered? From what I've seen shocks would be something of interest. What about a level kit, Fender flares, or lift kit?
Thanks in advance
The kit is sold in box kit form and super lift makes it difficult to separate out all the parts you need with out the torsion bar components from the front box kit. Still your not saving all that much, it's easier just to purchase the complete kit front, rear or both and only use what you need.
