I didnt think you could put a spindle lift on a torsion bar system ranger. I might have to do this to my 08 FX4!

Looks really really good btw!

Awesome truck man! I love the newer sports.

The squeak you hear can be ball joints or tie rods. I get it to over speed bumps. I know my tie rods need replacing so whenever I get there ill let you know if that was the solution. Lifting it and bigger meats puts a lot more strain on the front end too.

Cute girl too!

Ahhhhh, gottcha.

So it's kinda like everyone that keeps their bike/snow board/luggage racks on all the time even when not in use. LOL

It's like everyone out here that owns a Jetta. They all have the Thule roof racks that stay on all year long.

Truck looks good bro.

I have one too, its the best thing for carrying bikes in a truck. Takes no time to load and the bikes dont move, I just have to be careful that the tires stay away from the exhaust (melted a tire). But i can see why he leaves it on, when you have to put it on and take it off every time it takes away from the convenience of how fast it is to load. Mine stays on most of the summer.

So you spray just a little bit of grease on the rubber mounts. Do you take anything apart or do you just spray right onto it. And by rubber mounts.. you mean where the sway bar mounts to the frame..yes?

You got it! I gave both mounts a good shot and took it for a nice bumpy ride right away to work it right in there and it went from old bed squeaky to silent within the matter of a few minutes. I was surprised at how much noise it was making, at first I was thinking i had a much more serious problem. I found it by lying under the front of the truck while i had a friend jump on the bumper, otherwise i could only ever hear it while driving on a bumpy road, so you can check it out first to see if that is your problem.
