Lifted!!!

Finally got my 3" lift Doetsch spindles on the ranger. its awesome sitting up so high while driving. the pain of doing the lift was getting the old ones off, couldnt get the abs sensor out of the old on so im running abs-less for now, but who needs brakes while you can just roll over everyone. i love the stance of it but might later on get some shackles and put it in the 1" lift point, we'll see. well on to pics. and i know my(i think the correct name) camburg is off, gunna go get it aligned be for my 4 hours a driving next weekend for the next florida meet :)

Looks great man! Decrank the torsion bars about an inch and that will level it out and help with the camber (camburg is an long travel kit).

You can uncrank torsion bars just like you can crank them. Give it a try. It's an easy fix if you don't like it.

Do you have a before and after with the same angle? Maybe that would be easier to see.

Damn dude you need an AAL and to crank those bars a few more turns. Those 31s should look small on your truck, they look like they fit it now which is weird

Looks good. I kinda like the lean. Mine is low up front even with the torsion bar crank and I hate it! I was thinking about taking my blocks out of the back and putting in add-a-leafs and shackle to be able to adjust the rear to sit level or a little low. Get it Aligned and we'll see it this weekend!

ya im wanting to get some shackles but i dont wanna crank the t-bars to keep the ride the same. i never did crank them which is why i really wanted to do spindles over BL but i just never liked BLs. i know thats what i thought but its really nice now.

thanks man ya i want little lean which i got plus some so i wanna get shackles and probably put it on the 1" raise point. actually i was wrong about the camber it just was judging it from the front pic while the tires were turned but it tracks straight and the messure out to be even. yup cant wait gunna be fun!

it aint that bad in person, more black. ya..removing them ball...im trying ha. the ball is either welded with the nut or something we have had everything on it trying to turn it we got it to were the ball moves with the nut but we cant hold it with anything cus it spins in it. im guna be cutting knotches in it to get a good hold. we also dont have the key so i cant take out the "male" part of the hitch unless we cut it and thats what we will do if we cant get the ball off. i need the ball for pulling the trailer and lawn equipment
