Superlift 4 " kit

Ok guys I am back to working on the truck. I bought something to drive for the winter so I can tear my Ranger apart. I am still looking at the Superlift 4" kit(K358).
I also have the coil over brackets already but not sure If I am going to go that route.


My question is..... the truck is going to be a daily driver. and Never offloaded other than corn fields or woods for firewood. Can I get by with the torsion bars or should I up grade to the coil overs?

Also, I have a 1" body lift in the box yet. And I also have a brand new set of togo M/Ts sitting here. Will the 305/70/16s fit with the 4" suspension lift and 1" body lift(do I even need body lift?). I plan on using stock 7" wheels and a spacer to push them out a little

I have 4.10s new with 32/11.50/15s. How bad is the 305s going to rob the power compared to the 32s?

Also, is the Superlift Front Driveshaft # 9636 a good choice to?

I want do all the suspension mods, then POR15 the frame/body underside and topcoat with chassis black. I just want to do all the suspicion work first not to disturb the new paint. thanks Guys

nothing wrong with torsion bars for a DD. Just dont crank the keys up and it will actually be a pretty smooth ride.

The shocks are the weak point of the ride on the superlift. You can use your coilover brackets and install fox shox with out the coils to help tame the ride. ( I did this for 6months prior to welding on my braces. This gets u the ride of the cos but not the ground clearance. ( perfect for street) Also 305s fit fine with the superlift. I would consider 16x8in wheels though or get 285/75r16s (same as a 305 just narrower) if you want to keep you stock wheels. My truck for ref with coilovers and 305/70r16 MTRs

From what I have read from other people's experiences, you will want to get the superlift drive shaft. If I was going to do a superlift I would do coilovers as well but that's just my opinion. The tires will fit just fine. A 305/70r16 will fit just fine. It's basically just a 33x12.5 if I recall correctly
