Leaf Spring...

One of the shackles on my leaf spring broke. Prolly on one of the trails who knows but anyway got 175,000 out of it so im pretty happy. I'm gonna get one off of a another ranger at crazy rays, but could I get one off of a newer ranger and put it on?

Yeah, I don't think they've changed since the early 90's.

I would defintely get the pair, if one broke then the other may not be far behind.

yeah prolly but when you have the wheels jacked up the spring that i put in causes the wheel to sit slightly lower than the other one and i talked to a ford mechanic and he told me that a newer spring would cause it to do that which is what i thought before but i just wanted to have an expert opinion.

since i have a newer spring it pushes the driver side down and i dont have to much interest in lifting my truck, if i did i wouldnt be able to get back to this certain spot i always go to there are many fallen down trees n stuff so i cant :/
