Post Steering Stabilizer for 2010 Ranger

Hey there,
I am just wondering if anyone has come across a steering stabilzer that will fit the new 2010 ford rangers. I have done a lot of searching but I have yet to find a stabilizer which will fit into my 2010 Ranger.
Please, if you know of any stabilizer companies that will accomadate my truck let me know
Thank you!!

I wanted to get one becasue I am going to throw on some torsion keys to level the front that 2-3" and i am gonna buy BFG T.O all terrain 275s, i thought this doing this would maybe make my wheel shake a lot due to the bigger tires, what do you think?

Just crank the torsion keys or get ones from an older truck.

you can run up to a 285x75x16 or 32x11.5x15 stock. what you need to get is prekeys its the keys before the lowering one;s you have now and install them...

you do not need a steering stabilizer for a rack and pinion steering.

in 08 i think it was. ranger keys where reindexed in 4x4 which lowered the truck you want keys from an older model. it will make the factory ride height higher.

look in the suspention section. there is a thread that is something like 10 pages long talking about the "prekey" mod. 08 was the first year zach was talking about.

and ISH means $h!t. we can't say **** cause of the filters so people say ISH.

by ISH i meant your ****. meaning your wheels and tires.

but leveling kits are usually a no go on these trucks. they cause premature wear of a few parts and your front shafts will be at a crazy angle. i suppose if you dont plan on wheeling your truck you'll be fine. but i dont think its recommended for continued offroad use or you'll be replacing parts in no time

Pre-keys or 1998 to 2007 Ranger torsion keys will net about 1.5" with the same adjustment bolt preload.

go to the junk yard and prob get older keys for about $5 and about 10 min of work getting them out if that. it only takes 20 min from jack raising and lowering to change torsion bars.

Pre-keys and a slight crank will do the same thing and be much cheaper.

so basically you guys are saying to not get a levelling kit, but to get these pre-keys or get keys from an older ranger and put them in and it will do the same as a levelling kit?

Yes, pre-keys and 1998 to 2007 Ranger torsion keys are the same thing. People just started calling them pre-keys.
