Never mind about the suspension "lift"... I've concluded from reading that this thing is stock... completely stock... thanks to the thread about the "low look of the 08 and newer Rangers" that's stickied up at the top...
I know the rear springs have blocks under them, about 2 or 3", and the front looks to be riding nearly or is riding stock... the **** end is higher up than the front of the truck.
It is rolling on 31" BFG's... so I assume that not that much lift was needed at all to clear the tires.
Maybe the torsion bars are cranked a little to raise the front a tad bit? How can I tell if that's the case? If it is, aren't the torsion bars going to wear out/fail because of the added stress?
I don't recall if I ever posted a pic here or not, so here it is...
Also, anyone know about aligning these trucks? I was told that very few shops will do an alignment on a lifted truck. I found one specialty shop that will do an alignment, but they are booked over the brim of the bucket, and they told me I'd be lucky if they can squeeze my truck in sometime next week...
So... if it's supposed to line up with factory specs, than I can do an alignment myself tomorrow at the community college on the Hunter alignment rack.
I do recall seeing camber adjustment eccentrics on the end of the radius arms, where the hub assembly bolts onto the radius arm itself. Toe is no problem, tie rods appear to be well. (will be giving it a good check over, it probably doesn't need anything on the front end since the ball joints were replaced not to long ago, from what I was told) But... what about caster? Do I need to worry about that?
All I know is the front tires are wearing horribly... they're already howling with only 300 some miles on them. They were put on shortly before I bought the truck. You can run your hand over the tread and feel the jaggedness of the tread blocks... they're wearing at a slope, badly.
I cannot afford to wear these tires out prematurely (not to mention how much that would **** me off) so any info regarding any of the above questions would be greatly appreciated.
So... should a factory alignment spec list get this truck straightened out and keep those BFG's wearing evenly in the front?
