Because I keep getting PMs asking about pricing. LOL:

Latest Pricing:
Kit with powdercoated brackets: $290
Kit with raw brackets: $270

Shipping:
$17 US
$46 Canada

Kit includes:
4 brackets (2 upper, 2 lower)
4 gussets to reinforce shock tower
2 shock tower spacers for upper mounts
8 rod end spacers (for 1/2" wide rod ends--like Fox)
All hardware to install--grade 8 zinc plated

What else you will need:
2 coilover shocks
2 coil springs
2 limit straps and brackets

What you may need:
Bump stops if you are lifting your truck at the same time, but if you already have a Superlift, or if you are remaining at stock height, you can reuse what you have. You simply need to trim back the bracket on the frame where the bump stop mounts, so that the coilover will clear it. You then redrill a hole in the remaining part of the bracket and mount the bump stop further in.

Hey all, this is just a general question about the coil over setup. Once the coil overs are installed, do you need to run with the front swaybar installed or is it o.k. to run with out it? Thanks for any input.

Personal preference, I don't run my front away bar but others have. It drives like a boat with out it but works great for me.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:
I've been going over the way these runs have been working out, and I've decided to do it a little different. The last few runs have had people who get in on the list early, but by the time I get enough interest and order a batch, some can't be found. I completely understand that some people plan on having money available by a certain time, but things come up. I've been there myself plenty of times, and I have no hard feelings toward people who get on the list but then don't come through. It's just not working well this way, so I'm going to do things different going forward:

I'm not keeping a running list of people who are interested. I'm going to do this as first paid, first on the list. This way, I'll take payments, and keep the orders rolling through the shop. I can have smaller batches done this way with a better handle on delivery dates. As of right now, everyone who has paid will get there setups within the next two weeks. I have 3-4 sets that should be ready soon in addition to the ones that are already paid for.

So here it goes: I'm not deleting the last update, but I'm starting this list over. Only the paid orders are going to be on it. I'm not going to wait until I have 10 orders, but I will pay the shop for the stock and cutting of 10 sets at a time, and they will weld them as needed. They are also now set up to do the powdercoating, which should help keep the turn around time down, as I won't have to take them to another shop anymore and wait an additional two weeks.

I will order hardware when I order batches of brackets, so that I have it ready to go when they're done. By doing it this way, I will reduce the amount I shell out on parts and hardware up front, so I'm not then scrambling to get them all paid for.

I hope everyone is happy with this change, but it's something that has to be done. The current arrangement isn't working.

Latest Pricing:
Kit with powdercoated brackets: $290
Kit with raw brackets: $270

Shipping:
$17 US
$46 Canada

Kit includes:
4 brackets (2 upper, 2 lower)
4 gussets to reinforce shock tower
2 shock tower spacers for upper mounts
8 rod end spacers (for 1/2" wide rod ends--like Fox)
All hardware to install--grade 8 zinc plated

Stainless steel hardware is an additional $25

What else you will need:
2 coilover shocks
2 coil springs
2 limit straps and brackets

What you may need:
Bump stops if you are lifting your truck at the same time, but if you already have a Superlift, or if you are remaining at stock height, you can reuse what you have. You simply need to trim back the bracket on the frame where the bump stop mounts, so that the coilover will clear it. You then redrill a hole in the remaining part of the bracket and mount the bump stop further in.[/QUOTE]

To add yourself to the list:
1. Send payment to sbeau1 (at) metrocast (dot) net.
.......include in your instructions that it's for Ranger coilover brackets, and if you want powdercoated or not
2. quote the latest update to the list and add your info (remove the quote code from your post)
3. check in on the thread for updates.

I will update the list to show what has shipped, so it should be easier to keep track of.

This is a service the community needs and I'm sure everyone understands your need to change how the list is done.

That shouldn't be necessary, but I'll let you know.

I am supposed to be picking up the first 10 sets from powdercoating this Friday, and I'm waiting for my hardware order to come in, which should be by then, so I should be able to get them packed up and shipped over the weekend.
