I FOUND A SUSPENSION LIFT.... HOPEFULLY

I found a lift on craigslist a couple months back, i just never had the money due to being 17 and not having a real good job. well i got a job at a garden center and am making pretty decent money. Well i told my mom about it and since i already have my bills paid she gave me the a ok on it. the only problem is that its out in [email protected]#k, egypt. He want $250 for it but i planned on offering $200 for it, well starting there. it comes with shocks and had "most" of the bolts. so i was hoping the someone on here could tell me what im missing once i get it. if anyone wants to look at it here is the link
6" skyjacker kit for 1983-93 Ranger
everything looks a little rusty, but thats ok cuz i wanna paint it all ford blue anyway.

i also ran across these rims too, they will be perfect for some 35s and will look damn good on my truck

What are the specs on your truck? And I don't see any bolts in the pics.

Seems like a good deal. Just be ready to buy bolts or use your factory ones when you go to install it. I think you may need a lil more lift in the back to make up for the front..

^^ why would he have a drive shaft problem?


this isnt like the new trucks where you need a new drive shaft. you dont need to do anything. keep stock drive shaft. put lift on and god

because 6" lift compared to your driveshaft, which is what? 3', 4'? lets say 4, which gives you an angle addition of somewhere around 15*

do you not think think that would cause an increase in wear?
