Confirm RCD Lift

Im just about ready to start buying everything to lift up my Ranger, I would like to confirm everything with everyone just to be sure that im doing it correctly and I haven’t missed anything to avoid any future problems. Here is everything that I have concluded:

2006 Ford Ranger FX4
V6 4.0L 4x4 8.8" Rear Axle


RCD 5” Lift (11-42498)
U- Bolt Kit

11.25” Rotors

Reinforce the drop Diff. Bracket

9636 Superlift Front Drive Shaft

12” Hypercoils 750lbs Coil Springs

Skyjacker Softride Lift Leaf Springs 6” (FR36S)

Will these fit correctly on the 2006 Ranger with the RCD Front lift? Will it be level? I don’t mind if the back end is up a little for when I load up the box. Also any advice for installing these would be great.

Thanks Guys

That exactly what I did with my truck. I love it. The back end will sit a coule inches higher then the front. But it's not bad.

Rear.

48" to the wheel well.



Front.

45 1/2" to the wheel well.



79" to the roof.



That was when I finished the install.

BTW thanks for the emblems. You didn't say anything about the edge stickers. Gotta love unexpected freebies. Thanks.

I thought you can no longer get the RCD kit? Was it not discontinued?

He is buying all the parts and putting his own together. That is why he wants to confirm everything. At least thats the way I took it.

I think they would, they fit my 03 great. I don't think they've changed anything since.
