Lift suggestions please

I got a '06 Sport Ranger with torsion bars with a manual transmission. Currently, I have the stock rear 36 inches high and the front 33 inches high. I want to do 3inch front lift so I can level it. I plan to buy new meats, 32's with 15 inch rims. And, I also plan to crank up a bit the tbars along with purchasing a Truxxx leveling kit. Will the kit interfere with the manual transmission? Anyone had bad experiences with Truxx leveling kits? Is there anything I need to be aware of? Please help!

wtf is a "truxx" kit? Link please.


What you can do is crank the torsion bars. Are you 4x4 or 2wd......that plays a roleas to what lift we would suggest.

I think its a torsion key kit. You can run 32s stock, just crank your torsion bars up a tid bit. I'm running them on a 04 Edge, which is the same truck as your 06 Sport.

this? http://truxxx.com/ford_products/101050.htm

Yea....you want to stay away from those torsion keys.....put too much of a bind on your ball joints.


I ran 32x11.50s with cranked bars.....and it was darn near level. Maybe you can find the 2" rear block to replace your current 2.5" block.
