Put in my lift springs today *pics*

My truck seems about 4" higher then it was now look. I really need alignment cams and rear drop shackles now. Tell me what you think...

BEFORE

AFTER

Here are the factory springs next to the Skyjackers. They look to be about 4" taller right off the bat.

CLICK ME

Here they are installed, you can see the shocks are actually holding the springs back from expanding all the way. That is def. one of my next upgrades!

You you think these will work to correct my alignment? They are only $25 each.

KYB makes shocks for the 88-97 tib and ttb rangers.
i would spend the extra money and get the monotube kyb shocks..

thats what i plan on doing when/if i get a liftkit.

i also think your going to need drop brackets, along with the alignment cams.

your prob going to need a drop pitman arm also to get the alignment right.

this is the ttb drop bracket. you wont need one this big, but it gives you the general idea.


Edit: you can also see the drop pitman arm in the pic.

Well I already bought superlift superide shocks for the front and back. I just dropped the truck off to get the hubs put in and an ABS sensor replaced. I removed the front valence to give me more clearance, higher look and better approach. I also relocated the Lic. plate.
