Everything came out great. Makes me want to do a coilover swamp on the stock suspension and move back home where I have a welder so I can try and fab things up.

No problem.

Listen I will buy you the "gems", the hot glue gun and extra glue if you do it. Or whatever kind of glue or adhesive substance you want to use.

Question. Is swapping coil overs really that simple? Two brackets that you bolt on and throw em in? Those pictures made it look so damn simple.

yes and no.

IMO you need to watch the travel, and you will probably need bump stops and limit straps in the right place.

Good luck finding the bolt-on brackets. RCD says that there aren't any parts left over from kit production and that the Ranger 4x4 SLA kits will never be made again.

yea its "really that easy".....sortof. you have to cut off the factory bumpstops though. which requires fabbing up new ones or else your coils will not like it very much. as for downtravel, i gained about an inch and a half downtravel with the coilovers. i need to limit it though because 1, i ripped a brake line in half(dont worry, got a longer one), 2, cv's arent liking it very much. too much downtravel and the cvs will pop out. not a fun fix
