To all the lifted members

Whats a decently priced suspension lift out there?

I'm really interested in a lift kit for my truck but as far as that I'm worried about having to change gear ratios in my truck to compensate for increased height and larger tires.

I guess you can say I'm looking for a Entry level lift, give the truck a mean look and for tackling medium trails.

get coil spacers in the front... you can get them on ebay or in JCWhitney. they will lift the front 2" to level out your truck. there about $80. you could rpobably fit 31's under your truck with those.maybe and AAL in the back. that might raise the back about 1-2". thatd probably give you 2" all the way around for less thatn $150. thatd be good for a decent lift. hope that helped

yeah go to user cp and copy and paste exactly what Bill posted

Avatar has to be 150x150 for non contributing members, it doesn't resize for you. that's up to you.

one other thing to do is in your user profile their are spaces to fill in alot more about truck than 95 ranger which is all you have listed

you should be able to just get bigger coils with the ibeam front, and you can run new lowering shackles in the rear or an add a leaf, or a block...

IT's prolly a midwest thing.

By the way, there's much better ways to raise psot count. I'd recommend insulting Andy (int3rc3ptor) it works great for me.

Oh btw zach beard, you said earlier in ur post "01+" for superlift or body lift. thats 98+ but im assuming u jus forgot?

post whoring doesnt do you much good around here. PLaces like RPS would be more suited for post whoring.

You joined in march of this year, that makes you "new" to the site still. Considering the length of time alot of members have been on the board, that is not very long.

Go get your 2wd stuck somewhere
