BLING BLING....

Aight so, Fabtech and ProComp offer suspension lifts for the Ranger at comparable prices, was wondering what everyone thought about each brand and any personal experiences that may help me decide which one to go with.

Fabtech: $692.99
3" Lift Includes; Front Spindles, Rear Add-a-Leaf, 4 Fabtech Shocks

ProComp: $570.99
3" Lift Includes; Front Spindles, Rear Add-a-Leaf, 4 ES3000 Shocks

I appreciate any info yall can throw my way.

right now, i like how the pro comp spindles are alot more... they set themselves away from the wheel...

i have not looked into either, as i never considered lifting my current 2wd...

I just lifted mine this past week with the procomp spindles It was a pretty straight forward install except the instructions sucked! also on my truck I had to get a bit creative with the abs sensor as part of the spindle was blocking the sensor from going in all the way. But I like how it doesn;t push your front wheels out and the use of stock wheels is also good!

Yellow Tweed?

I'm gonna pick none of the above. I have a camburg lift, which uses a fabtech spindle. My truck rides like a caddy and I can do some serious off roading too.

Do elaborate.

Sure, it is just that, a "lift" spindle, but yes, it is a suspension lift.

i thought that they were the same, as they are made of cast metal and one makers makes both, then the company paint em their color and puts their name on them??


P.S. i think it is a "spindle lift" instead of "suspensionlift". doesnt really matter though, all semantices.

It's a Spindle lift, really all it does is place your wheel lower on the truck making the truck higher when you release the jack. Suspension wise, Torsion bars are the same (EDGE), shocks are the same length, lower and upper control arms are the same... A Kit like RCD is a suspension lift, and that's why it's 1700 bucks more expensive.
