Hey dirty, it's a little more complicated on a TIBeam ranger versus coils.

You'll pretty much have to get the raised TIBeams, all your extensions and it'll prolly be a small pain removing the spindle fomr those TIBeams... jsut throwing in my $.02, wish I could help you out man.

Are they bolts or rivets?

I prefer grinding rivets versus heating and hammering.
