I could not justify paying this much for a tube UCA, two Billstiens and a spindle with shocktower. Seriously minus the spindle thats about 30 bucks worth of metal, 20 minutes on the bender and a couple hours weld time max.

hey Tim, I've got the exact same ranger as you and I'm looking into the performance kit as well. Did you have to crank the bars in order to tuck 35's?

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and was considering beefing up the suspension (after researching the disadvantages to just cranking). Talked to a local guy and quoted me $800 for the 3inch Fabtech and $300 install!
So...is the Fabtech that horrible?

Grizzly
I did a 5.5 Fabtech on my 2wd ranger and its easy to do at home with simple tools ill try to find a list of tools that you'll need for install and i did it by myself so I'm pretty sure you'd be able to knock it out pretty easily with a friend or two hope this helps man

Doesnt specify what exact tools but as i said before you wont need many tools this is what fabtech says for the 3in spindle lift for 2wd edge model rangers
FLOOR JACK
JACK STANDS
ASSORTED METRIC AND S.A.E SOCKETS, & ALLEN WRENCHES
DIE GRINDER WITH CUTOFF WHEEL

ull need the cut off wheel to cut off the OE steer stops and install the new ones hope this helps!! if you dont have a air compressor and cutoff wheel you'll be able to drive without putting the new steer stops in just try not to full lock your wheels because your brakes will lose compression and youll have to pump the brakes to be able to stop

Just hope this all helps you out Grizzly

im sorry i missed one part but you have to do this for sure so you will need the cutoff wheel

Using a die grinder with a cutoff wheel, remove
approximately ” from the front lip of the lower control
arm. Remove any burrs using a sander.

Right on thanks Yessick! I saw the PDF for the instructions too. Hopefully it'll make sense. Guess I"ll pull the trigger and buy the kit online.

with the fabtech, i maxed out the tbar with different torsion keys. the camburg, i actually uncranked the torsion bars from max to get a better ride, and more performance. the front fenders are the main reason i'm able to fit the 35's.

now i'm running zero lift in the rear so the maxed torsion bars would give it a ridiculous squat.
