After 3/03 the brake rotors are alittle bigger, which means you have to buy pre-3/03 rotors not sure on exact size. You dont need a new driveshaft right away, the kit comes with spacers. So you will need new front rotors

you'll need 11.25" rotors that will fit an 02 ranger.

However, I'm not sure of the other braking system components. I'd like to assume your calipers, etc will be the same. Assuming they are the same, then again, from the kit all you'll need extra will be the 11.25" rotors.

Given you're an 07 you shouldn't need a new front drive shaft right away, but do save up for one. You may also want different wheels at a later date.

The kit calls for wheels with a 4in back spacing. HOWEVER, I called RCD last month and asked them about that. The alcoas with their 4.5" backspacing will work fine. I will be getting wheels shortly though as I'd prefer a wider stance since I'm going up in height. The idea is to offset at least some of the change in center of gravity, though it probably won't be much. The question I have to answer for myself though, is do I want to keep running 33s or so I want to go up to 35s? I'll be geared to 4.88, which is a little low, but it gives me some room if I go larger. I just don't want to put a body lift on, which is what might be needed to run the 35s. Of course there's always front glass and pulled bed sides!

Don't forget badass tires, but yeah I think it's only rotors, then later front driveshaft.

check this out........

http://www.drivewire.com/percatalog/...IFT%20KIT&pt=4

open 2 browsers....

do RCD for 1 and superlift for other

RCD is cheaper! hahahaha

Thing that gets me is it says for 2wd, even when clicking on 4 wheel drive navigation to get there.
