Quick ttb lift question.

so i've recently lifted my ranger and have a "slight" positive camber issue.

i know i need to drop the axle arms at the pivot points to get it into the ballpark of alligning it.
my quesion is this, what arre the parts called? ive seen radius arm drop mounts but the radius arms are the ones that run parallel to the frame, adn i cant see lowering them helpful to fixing my problem.
are these so-called radius arm drop mounts what i need?

http://cgi.ebay.ca/83-97-Ford-Ranger...item439c8d7381

are these waht i need?
thanks

You need the drop brackets for the beams as well. How much did you lift it? If it really is only a "slight" camber issue it can be corrected with cam bushing.

won't happen unless you cut and turn the beams, the camber cannot be adjusted for that much lift, you need the drop brackets,

when i had the ttb on the truck. i had a 4 inch lift with drop brackets. and in order to get the camber aligned i still need the cam bushings... so it wouldnt hurt to go ahead and get the cam bushings and then if you still need the drop brackets, get them too

The cam bushing won't be able to correct for 3.5 inches of lift. You can usually get away with 2 inches, maybe a little bit more depending on your setup. You also have to have the correct matched cam bushing for your truck, if you buy the biggest cam bushing you can find, but don't need it will throw the caster off.

FWIW, Twin Traction Beam was for the 4WD models. The 2WD models were called Twin I-beam suspension.
