well i was thinking of drilling a hole into the frame and putting a sleeve in it and using some shackles mounted that way, its the front brackets i cant figure out how i want to do, i would like to have them hidden buy the bumber if possible, if not then no biggie...can i get some coil spring pics of how your guys did your control arms and trac bars. also would TJ coils fit into the stock ranger upper coil buckets? if not did u do it on the outboard part of the frame. i got some good dibs on TJ LA control arms and RE coils. also have a guy i can get some lower spring mount buckets from. trying to decide the best way to go as this is my daily driver
btw 4wheel & offroad did a 97 reg cab for the ultimate adventures with a coiloverd d30 in the front, locked with 35's and they said it held up the whole trip....until the ride home, he broke the trac bar mount. i dont do too hardcore wheeling, mostly at uwharrie, but since my ranger is 2wd i havent had the chance. im really looking at converting to 4wd and sas is the way to go...im goin full width later on down the road, osha shut us down at work so i would like to do this as cheap as possible, and since i have the d30 it cut costs wwwwwaaaaaaaay down
btw next summer i hope to have fw d60 and 14b setup
EDIT: ZAbeard, if u would be interested in making a couple 100 bucks and can duplicate your, upper shock/spring brackets and control arm brackets i will also pay for materials. i can handle the frame crossmembers and the track bar brackets. pm me and lemme know. i can weld them on but when it comes to tube bending and major fab, im not too good
