Why do you say? Are your 750's wearing down already?

The lowest with shipping I found was $122 but didn't order them yet.

Dont get the 800's. I wish i would of gotten 750s so bad. I might get them an swap them in. On a side note the 800s have not sagged at all.

The truck is a tad higher in the front. The rear has stock block, RCD AAL and Shackle.

Thanks, ranger.

I'm gonna order the 750's and see if I can get a coil compressor thingy at autozone to get this fixed. Rubbing is so annoying.

Never had any probs so far,the sus is so stiff it prevents it from compressing alot while offroading...as long as you dont jump the truck you will be ok.

I got them from this place. They were cheaper.

Why would you rather have the 800's compared to the 750's?

Something about my truck sitting lower in the front than the back just pisses me off.

Now after talking with the guy I get my hook ups from near my moms house... I'm thinking about running the Fox CO's with a 8in and 6in spring equalling either 750 or 800 lb rating... 14in springs too. Brian did it. He's got the RCD with the Fox CO's and that combo of springs and he sits WAY taller than me on 35's too...

I hear ya. I don't mind a little rake.

I would love to get a set of sexy Fox coilovers, but I'll save my money for other projects. $122 was enough for me just so I can get the truck back to were I can drive it without having to worry about major rubbing.


Does he have any binding problems or anything like that with the longer 14" coilover??

While I was spending money I figured I'd go ahead and use up my $50 gift card from Summit.

Quote:
Part Number Part Description QTY

GTR-4060868 GATORBACK POLY-V-BELT 1

ENS-9-9102R LOW PROFILE SNUBBERS RED 1
I decided to get the mid sized bumpstops, should be a good compromise between the big ones and the pancake styles. To finish the gift card off I got a Gatorback belt. Hopefully it will fix my squealing and then I can keep my old belt for a spare.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Tre, what's the part number on those bumpstops? I'm assuming they are from energy suspension?

Don't sweat it, I went with the Energy Susp part 9.9116 that Razor posted on page 1.

Negative, OE bumpstops (at least mine) are yellow, 2 inches long, and encased in a 1 inch long metal sleeve.

I guess ford used more than one type of bumpstop on the SLA rangers? Cause my stock ones were just like the ones Lefty is describing.....Guess they changed them up before '03.
