Your going to need a hell of a swaybar setup for all that body roll due to moving the center of gravity in about 4 inches on each side..

Good idea tho if theres room for it.

moving the springs under the frame would be ok, but inside the frame is to far. I plan to inboard my springs under the frame in the near future, but my rig is not for the road.

Don't they typically mount coil springs under the frame? If thats the case, as redranger said I'm sure you'd get more than enough room.

I would look at late 90's early 00' S-10 suspension drop kits etc. for ideas.

Won't 325/50/15's fit on a ranger without having to move your rear suspension around?

Icon10 It's been awhile>>>>

Ya I know, jump startin an OLD thread, but was lookin through my posts and came across this, so thought I'd post what I ended up doin back in 08 or 09>>>

I ended up movin the springs under the frame usin "factory" 00 Explorer front frame mounts, makin rear mounts for the shackle hangers, I narrowin the rearend by usin 2 right side axles, and centered the chunk since I'm runnin a fuel cell:



Weld Draglite 15X12 with 7.5" backspacin & 28X15.50 tires on rear and 15X5 fronts with 225/75 skinnies.......
