So I bought this 1986 ranger about a week and a half ago. The guy I bought it from was not the owner when it had all the mods done and wasn't able to tell me what all was done. So I've been slowly finding out more and more.
So far I've found:
-3" Body lift
-4" (i think) suspension lift
-Posi locked rear (as per the les schwab guy who fixed my leaky driver's rear axle seal)
-Possibly aftermarket seats that never had their electrical hooked up for the internal air bags. But the back of the drivers one leans back on the right side, so I'm looking for something to swap in.
And these problems
-Broken dipstick - broken off at the max line
-Loose bolts on the rear drive line (all of them)
-Missing bolt on the shifter plate
-Disintegrated front shock bushings and worn out shocks
-Bumpers not raised with the body
Not sure what else I may find, but I took a couple pictures hoping some of you would be able to help me identify some more things.
I'd like to replace the shocks, but not sure what to get. On right now are Gabriel Pro Ryder Premium Gas Truck Shocks.
Rear brakes done this afternoon and they spilled some fluid while bleeding them.
