Front end lift

Hi there,

I have an '09 Ranger with:

1.Torsion Bar Crank 1.5
2. PA 3" Body lift
3. Chevy 2" Shackle Drop
4. Add-a-Leafs

5. Procomp front suspension
6. Billstein Rear.
7. 33x11.5 Procomp Xtreme All-terrain

Truck looks awesome, but I'm wanting to lift the front end up a few inches so that it lvls out the truck. However, I've discovered that Superlift is now Bankrupt, and is hard to get ahold of their products.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a way to lift the front up?
Thanks!

i would start off by doing what we call the 'prekey' mod.. theres lots of threads here on RF explaining it, but basically Ford changed the front end torsion key adjusters on 2008+ trucks...to make them sit lower...

so if you throw in a set of torsion adjusters from a 98-2007 Ranger you should gain at the very least roughly 1.5" in the front..

read up on it!

also, superlift is not bankrupt, they are just not manufacturing the lifts in large amounts right no do to a company restructure. you can still get them though.

Sweet, Thanks!

Yeah, I went to the local off road shop, and they mentioned Superlift has gone MIA for ordering in Canada. They've been waiting on a couple of things from them for 4 months :S

Superlift has been very slow turning out parts and entire kits.
