1993 ranger lowering

Ok i found a suspension kit that comes with new springs, flip kit, and shocks that lower the truck 3" in front and 5" in the back . When i install the springs in the front it will make my camber out of wack. My question is does anyone know of a camber correction kitor anyother way that i can fix this?

they make bushings for the upper balljoint to correct camber alignment, but you will have a hard time gettin the truck back in spec with a 3" spring.

best route for 3" drop in front is drop beams

go to NAPA, they will be able to find you the correct castor/camber bushings, called eccentrics. the biggest you can find is 3.5*.

I got fully adjustable cams when I did my leveling springs, i think they were around 48 bucks with some discounts, I don't see how it would be any different for lowering purposes tho, especially if you did more suspension mods in the future

3.5* means they are adjustable from -3.5* to 0* to +3.5*

3.5* is just the largest adjustment eccentric that can be purchased. Oh, and when I bought mine from NAPA they were like $17 a side.

If you have yet to buy your parts I have a set of DJM Dream Beams 3" drop. I am gonna list them in the classified section but this gives you a heads up if your interested. They are $440 on DJMs web site and about $400 shipped on ebay. I will sell these $350 shipped anywear in the US. They are used but in great shape.

Even still, thats more than I paid 5 years ago for my kit. I bought the Beams and flip kit from GFC as a kit for 299, and having it shipped to me was a total cost of $314. I wonder what made the prices rise?
