I want more than the typical lift gives!

Does any company make a suspension kit for the 2wd Edge that is higher than 3.5 because I want more lift than that and I dont want to do a body lift. Does the camburg kit add more to the height of the t-bar crank than stock? (that is the best way I could come up with for that question) or is 3.5 all I can get?

spindles plus body lift would look good, why not do a body lift.

he has a waag bar and wants to keep it.

camburg makes a 5.5 also, its like 1695 tho, your gonna pay out the but to get all suspension like that but it would be nice not to have the body lift.

from camburg site...

Quote:
These are our new Ford Ranger Edge off-road suspension systems. These systems include custom fabricated spindles, upper A-arms with 1" mono *****, Brake lines, Bilstein shocks, and limit straps. The Edge Performance off-road system will yield up to 10" of wheel travel and up to a 6" lift. The spindles will add 3.5" of lift and the torsion bar crank will stiffen spring rate as well as add up to 2.5" of additional lift for ground clearance. To top off this awesome off-road performance system we have designed a dual shock system. This system will allow the 10" of wheel travel and give better off-road performance while absorbing bigger hits with the two Bilstein 5100 series shocks. The Ford Ranger Edge is an awesome platform to use as a true off-road truck.

Camburg's 5.5 is for coil sprung Rangers, the 6.0 is for torsion bar Rangers excluding 4x4 models. Both kits will only add 3.5" to your height, and cranking the torsion bars will only add so much as well. Fabtech's 5.5 is the same increase as Camburg's 5.5 (in height and designation for coil sprung trucks), and both are meant to get more performance (Camburg's anyway) out of your suspension, not lift. As far as a body lift I don't see any way to lift your truck more, Andy, unless you go custom and that is going to cost you.

Thanks for the help guys. So I will get the same amount of lift with the camburg as I will with the fabtech/procomp spindles with t-bar crank?

i would think so but the fabtech and procomp spindles arent improving your travel like camburg.

But is that the 2wd XLT that has coils still? Or the 2wd Edge?

Thats the problem between the different model 4x2's, one is coil and the other is torsion bar.

thats prolly XLT, if it was edge it would say it, cause so many lifts just say ranger lifts which i guess refers to the XLT model. besides fabtech and pro comp, ive only seen the camburg lift which looks really nice, but i dont really get the whole thing with the Tbar crank. if thats the case, couldnt fabtech just sell their lift as a 6"?
