it's 4/5 supposidly. my roomate has the exact same truck and it looks a hell of alot lower than 4/5. i tried putting a 2 inch block in the rear to get rid of the rake and i snapped the rear yoke on my driveline slamming it into second. haha. so 400 dollars later i'm back to 4/5. i want to flip my rear leaf spring hangers to get another 2 inches out of the rear. and order a new tranny crossmember from dallas hot rod parts and then i'll be pretty much done. do you know if you can put a rear sway bar on a newer 2wd ranger? or do some of the come stock with em?

no it will fit, I've got a flipkit on my truck with a bronco 2 sway bar.

Smakes, if you put your flipkit on woth flipped shackles you'll be a 7" in the back, so you'll have to flip them back over for a 5"

Make sure the sway bar comes off of a 8.8 axle of you have an 8.8, and a 7.5 if you have a 7.5. I dont know what size rears the b2s come with or what size axle your rangers have so just thought I would throw that in there.


bdydrpd89, your truck would look badass on some black rims, those steelies even look good.

your going to be putting your 2 piece driveshaft at a different angle dropping low, you might get vibrations in your driveline due to that so hence the need for shims
