Help!!!!???

I put a 2 inch coil spring lift on my 1997 xlt ranger 4wd. The lift fit but it made the tires tilt. Like the bottom of the tire tilted in toward the truck and the top was tiled outward. Is there any way I could fix that. Any help would be much appreciated

Camber and Caster is what you need fixed (that's your tilt), probably some toe too if you have not had an alignment since lifting it. Any Alignment shop will be able to fix you up. You might need some new cam bolts for the upper a-arms.

just take it in for an alignment already. you have TIB front suspension with drag link steering. you need the truck aligned, period. if you arent willing to listen to the solution, please dont ask the question.

I agree with Nate, get an alignment. As for koegels advice, you do not have control arms. You as Nate have stated have TTB or twin tractor/traction beams. UCA/LCA's came out a year after yours in 98.
