Basically. The hub sticks out into the rims unlike a 4wd:

I have OEM wheels as well, but 5/16" (0.3125") cleared the hub enough to fit.

Have EVER driven a ranger with the 225/70r15 Continental Contitracs? Ask anyone. They are horrid. If you think tires don't make a vehicle handle better, you sir are an idiot.

oh really? I wouldnt of known that since i had both a stock 2wd ranger with continentals and a 5/7 dropped truck with rims and low profile tires...

whats the 3 inch of the eibach kit hangers flipkit or what? Never really seen anyone use the rear part of the eibach kit.

Johns got the explorer axle with swaybar which is definitely nice, I had a flipped rear axle with a b2 sway bar and it was just amazing how it handled compared to just a flipkit which was still nice

We are using the eibach 2 inch drop coils and doing the hanger flip in the back with chevy drop shackles. Pro kit is just the name of the springs themselves. For the rear we are going the Ecodrop. Lol. I'm out of money.

You did the rear spring hanger flip correct? Your shackles are now upside down correct? Chevy DROP shackles are 1 inch longer than stock. Getting you a 2.5-3 inch total rear drop.

I don't know about you, but my shackles won't fit on right side up with the hanger upside down. Maybe this is why your truck has too much rake still. You're doing it wrong!

Ben just a heads up, if you flip Hangers and do drop shackles you might have to cut the bed because the shackles are longer
