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 available for an additional $30

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 order:
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. Turn around for orders is approximately 1 month.

Here's the best picture I could get just laying under my explorer. It's not as close as it looks but still fairly close. I do a good amount of offroading and no issues so far.



Here's the stance. Coil over conversion in the front and SoA with stock mono-leafs in the back. I made some shorter shackles to get the back down level with the front and still have some down travel on the coil overs.

Actually, you misread that. These are made to order. Turn around time (from the time you pay until the time they ship) is about a month.

These orders are pay-up-front. I don't currently make them on people posting that they want them. In the past, I did this, and sometimes spent months trying to sell part of the batch.

Guys, FYI, I can just about guarantee a 1 month turn time on these at this point. The shop has pieces for a bunch of sets. I can order them to be welded and powdercoated with a quick turn around time.

I got it. Sorry about not replying. I haven't been on my computer in a while, and I was having a problem emailing from my phone yesterday.

As far as the list, I don't keep copying the old shipped orders, and all orders from this forum have been shipped as of a few weeks ago.

So here it is, the beginning of the new list:

WGIBass - raw - PAID

I've let the shop know. Estimated delivery of a raw set to me is 10-25-14.

Boontendo, if you get your payment in, I can probably have yours about the same time.

The longer ones should go toward the back of the truck. If you look at the shock tower, you will see that the side toward the back is longer due to it being at an angle. It's not going to hurt anything if you swap them around, but I made them different sizes just because of that fact.

Hey guys, just wanted to update. All three of the above listed orders will ship this weekend! I'm picking up the parts and the hardware, and just have to sort the hardware and pack everything up!

You'll get a notification from USPS when they ship.

Awesome! I'm really looking forward to this... I also have another question for you guys.. I've been looking everywhere and I can't seem to find out if I need the Fox 4.488" extended eyelets or not. I'm getting the Fox 2.0 emulsion shocks. My truck is a 1998 4x4 stock height. Also have heard about longer Jeep brake lines, and I'm wondering about that too.

Yes, you will need the Fox extended eyelets. As for the brake lines, your stock lines are fine. You would only need the longer Jeep lines if you were going the be lifting the front 4" or more. The coil overs aren't going to give you any lift unless you add pre-load to the springs, and then you'll only get about the same as a torsion twist without sacrificing the ride quality that you're gaining from the coil over conversion.

Thanks! I'm relieved that I don't have to mess with the brake lines.

I personally don't run the extended eyelets. See my post toward the top of this page for pictures. If you need a set of the extended eyelets I have some I'll let go of just PM me an offer.

What is the difference between not having them and having them? I've done quite a bit of research but these eyelets still are somewhat of a mystery to me... I appreciate the offer on the eyelets btw, I still have to do some research first I guess; I'll let you know.

Most everyone that I've heard say that you need them for the shock body to clear the CV shaft. Griz700rocket has pics of his setup without them and it looks like they clear. I'm ordering mine now and I am getting the extended eyelets, for me it's just a little more clearance "insurance" and peace of mind.
