Longer CV's, are they out there?

Here's what I've got so far:

Superlift, with shock hoops and Fox 2.0 Reservoirs.
It rides superb for a torsion bar suspension, but I want coilovers.

I understand that with coilovers, the limiting factors for more travel would be the UCA, which I can alleviate with some BTF tubular arms, and the CV's.

Is there any aftermarket CV, or CV extension, or anything I can put in to get some more travel?

Ideally I'd like the DBR kit, but I just cant spend 3500 bucks, when I'm getting married soon...

Try to get just the CVs from DBR. Other than that you will have to go custom. Contact THE DRIVESHAFT SHOP or find a place near you.

I dont think the DBR CVs will work. they're 4" longer than stock.

I had some extended ones but you wouldn't get any extra travel out of them.

What CVs? DBR? They will be too wide since the kit widens the front end but you might be able to convince them to make you a custom set since they know how much room they will have to work with.

My buddy that has a local fab shop has been trying to get me to drop my truck off for a long travel 4x4 setup. He's done a couple 98+ rangers and was telling me about +2 or +3 CV's for the added track width.

Why would you need longer CV's? You're arms are stock length. What you'd wanna be after are high angle cv's that don't pop out and bind.

^^^ i was thinking the same thing. longer cvs wont solve your problem. with normal driving your stock cvs are the perfect length only when your suspension cycles do you need longer cvs. but they would just get all fed up with normal driving since they would be to long. like shane said you need high angle cvs
