My Coilover Suspension Thread
Well it is official. My truck goes into the shop (Hudlow Differential here in Rossville, GA) on May 15th, which happens to be my birthday. I'm not quite sure on all of the details because the mechanic is not sure what is going to be needed until he actually starts the project, but he's looking at a price of about 4K (at the most) and about 1-2 weeks worth of work (depending on how long it may take to get parts in). This will include a custom coilover suspension up front, with some custom arms and what not, and a flip-kit in the back, both which will be done by the same guy.
It's kind of irritating to NOT know what will be needed, because I could be searching around right now looking for what coilovers to buy because the anticipation of finally getting my truck in to get lowered is KILLING me. I've been riding around with 22's with the stock EDGE height (minus the rear blocks) for about two years now.
For reference, does anyone here know of a similar project like this that has been done with a Ranger? I would kind of like to know what some of this work will look like. The shop I'm going to builds competition rock-crawlers and stuff and just recently went into the hot-rod scene. Currently they're working on putting a 4-Link and some other stuff on a 300C (for airbags I think), but I haven't been able to swing by there to check out their work.
I'll be updating as much as I can with pics of the progress.
