Yes you can. You just need the correct length coil overs.

My truck with the coil-overs corners better.

The wife always asks if I am driving a sports car when we are out for a ride.

Lol, she doesn't understand ! It's how fast you get there !

Got it! Waiting on hardware, but I should have it within the next couple of days.

FYI, 1 set still available for quick shipment (as soon as hardware comes in--should be any day)

Just packed them up now and getting the labels on them. I was out of town most of last week and just got home late last night.

They'll be dropped off at the PO tomorrow on my way home from work.

Awesome Al! Definitely post up a few pics when you get them in!



I'm picking up the hardware for the other sets I have on Wednesday, and I'll get the paid ones sent out this week.


Still have one set available people! First come, first serve!

I don't have the bearings/inserts but I have two if you need them. Pay for shipping and they're yours. I'll even save you a few bucks and ship from det.

Yes there is!

I got the hardware last week, but I was out of town for the long weekend, so I didn't get them shipped yet. Everything got packed up Tuesday night, and they're shipping today.

UPDATE:

All sold out of the recent batch.
I have some parts cut but not welded. I'm going to have the machinist cut more parts, and I'll have them welded and powdercoated as orders come in.


Latest Pricing:
Kit with powdercoated brackets: $290
Kit with raw brackets: $270

Shipping:
$17 US
$46 Canada

Kit includes:
4 brackets (2 upper, 2 lower)
4 gussets to reinforce shock tower
2 shock tower spacers for upper mounts
8 rod end spacers (for 1/2" wide rod ends--like Fox)
All hardware to install--grade 8 zinc plated

Stainless steel hardware is an additional $25

What else you will need:
2 coilover shocks
2 coil springs
2 limit straps and brackets

What you may need:
Bump stops if you are lifting your truck at the same time, but if you already have a Superlift, or if you are remaining at stock height, you can reuse what you have. You simply need to trim back the bracket on the frame where the bump stop mounts, so that the coilover will clear it. You then redrill a hole in the remaining part of the bracket and mount the bump stop further in.

To add yourself to the list:
1. Send payment to sbeau1 (at) metrocast (dot) net.
.......include in your instructions that it's for Ranger coilover brackets, if you want powdercoated or not, and your R-F user name
2. quote the latest update to the list and add your info (remove the quote code from your post)
3. check in on the thread for updates.

I will update the list to show what has shipped, so it should be easier to keep track of.
