DJM 4/5 owners ...

I just bought a 2001 Std Ranger with a 4/5 drop already installed . Are the springs labeled Left/.Right on the intall ? The right side sits up much higher then the left . Might have the spring out of its seat . Any else have this problem ?

The spring may not be seated properly. Or maybe the DPO only put a drop spring on one side HAHA. Pics would help. You can probably jack up the front of the truck and take a look. The issue could end up being blareingly obvious.

the springs arent particular to which side..But I just Recently lowered my truck and had the same issue..and the spring was NOT seated correctly in the upper bucket!...
also the upper control arms ARE side particular.....the passenger upper control arm has a small hump on it...on its underside..by the balljoint...Thats how u know which side the upper control arms belong on!

Park it on level ground and take another straight forward shot.


Truck looks good besides the flag mirrors!

Great looking truck. Definitely sitting up higher on the right side. Needs some 06 mirrors though

Yeah I can't tell how uneven it is because it's on slanted ground.

Read through the build thread. Good luck with the 5.0!
