I hear ya My 98 is an ext cab but the back is filled with my subs so its like having a reg cab truck.

Im not a big guy so when i bought my 07 I opted for the reg cab since I dont plan on a system and another excuse not to carry my friends around. It is nice having the room in the ext cab though.

so I just did the alignment last night at my shop, umm 4 1/2 hours trying to get everything right with factory cams.. wow sooo if anybody thinks it's crazy to charge like 800 dollars to put there kit on and align it.. that is why.. the kit it's self is easy yes, but then you throw off your thrust angle in the rear, caster, camber, toe.. I had to slot my drivers lower control arm to allow more movement. seeing as how ford old put a cam on the lower control arm on the passengers side.. stupid jerks.. anyways back to work people

why not just get aftermarket alignment cams that are adjustable a couple degrees and its a ton easier to align youll never get it to factory alignment with the stock cams even with the djm uppers helping because they are longer than the factory uppers.

you made off damn good then, because getting those arms for free is worth 400+ alone, plus coils and such you basically got a 600 kit for free.

sell the shackles on here they will lift any ranger 2 inches they are the same as chevy drop shackles see if anyone wants to trade u stock shackles for 2 inch lifting shackles..
