So I finally got the spindles and coil spacers in... not without a lot of trouble though. >:(

Everything came off way to easy so I figured I was in for it later in the project. I was right.
First this that went wrong was summit sent me the wrong front shocks. The lower mounts were for something totally different so I had to get stud extenders for my stock shocks until my new fronts come in.

I had almost zero clearance on turning so I had to do a LOT of trimming on the lower control arms but that normal.

Everything went well for a while till I got to installing the brakes again. Apparently ford shipped a small number of rangers with a front caliper that is slightly undersized compared to the normal and I was lucky enough to get those calipers on my truck. So I had to machine down my rotors. Now I'm running custom 11 inch rotors haha. All in all it was fairly easy to do the install. Ended up doing my lower ball joints also.
Want to giver a big thanks to everyone who answered all my questions!
