Looking for some stock Pre 2007 torsion keys

I'm looking for some where to get stock torsion keys for a pre 2007 ranger. i have a 2007 ranger that i am almost 99% sure has the torsion lift keys on it and i want them off because i might be getting the super lift.

do you have to get these from a scrap yard/the forums? can you get these directly from ford or some kind of replacement parts place?

dam sweet stuff. and thats only 1 right? they don't come in pairs right? thats not as bad as i was expecting.. $140 for brand new keys from ford.. not to shabby considering its coming from the stealership.

still might attempt to hit up a junk yard and get some off that.. a decent size junkyard is bound to have at least one 98-2011 ford ranger 4x4 in it and hopefully its keys haven't been removed haha. only problem is i have no idea how to get them out..

thanks for the help guys

good luck with hand tools. Just get new ones and save the hard work for getting yours out. They are usually pretty rusted in place

tascaparts.com is where i got the diagram and where the price of 43ish/side comes from. they're stock ford parts. go under front suspension, torsion bar, and its listed under adjuster.

$87.12 for both of them together plus shipping which is around 10

either way your truck will have "smaller" keys than the 99 keys listed above. they changed them in 07 which is why 07+ 4x4 rangers look really small compared to 06<

friends dad has an 07 4x4 sport that looks like a 2wd 98-06. might just be a late year production model. its tiny next to their 01 xlt which has a cap and is sagging in the rear full of tools haha

well what we have to look for is the how the socket aligns for the bolt. the new lift keys are just indexed farther around. from what i'm seeing the stock keys bottom side of the socket is parallel with the bottom of the whole key. Where as on the lift key it angles up at about 35-40 degrees compared to the bottom of the whole key. now on mine at first glance it looks like it would be the lift keys because the bottom socket line is angled up but that skid plate is kind of in the way to see the entire bottom line of the key.. ugh might have to go back down there again to make 100% sure there the lift keys but I'm pretty sure they are. hopefully sometime tomorrow somebody who knows for sure can chime in

upon further inspection they are DEFINITELY ready lift torsion keys. which is good because that means getting stock keys and a superlift should improve ride quality!!!
