Yes, but you have to flip the spring perches, which requires cutting and welding.

I thought you also had to shorten the drivers side of the axle too?

How fast can you weld?

If you don't have access to a welder or know anyone that can weld them for you. This probbaly isn't something you want to do.

if you have a welder or know someone who can weld them for you. I bet it would take maybe 1 hour

I was pulling some parts of an explorer this guy had, and he was telling me for the axle in it to work on a ranger, you have to shorten the drivers side, go to a junkyard and get another passenger side axle and put it in the drivers side of the rearend.
Ha, he must have not known what he was talking about i guess.

You will also need to get the axle plates and ubolts for the axle

Or order a kit from Ruff Stuff Specialties the kit will come with perches and shock mounts

You have to refill the blinker fluid after swapping the axles too.
