dam this is a sweet rig man. those problems your having with the orw coil-over conversion on stock height suspension is kinda making me reconsider getting them. although, i'm gonna get them professionally installed so i guess they'll have to deal with any problems that come up, not me. let us know if anything else comes up.

The only issue that comes up on stock height rangers is the steering stop. Nick used a spacer and half inch bolt and now everything is fine on my truck. He put it in the pictures of my install. I've had no issues with my conversion. Loving it, the ride is sooo much better

You were making serious improvements to it until you put those fenders on. Take them off and sell them lol. Ive never been a fan of fenders like that.
