Suspension Swap

First post. So I'm running a 2005 Ranger Edge RWD. I was wondering if there are any cheap ways to eliminate my torsion bars and go to just springs and shock absorbers? I know there's Camburg and Dixon Bros. but let's face it I don't have $2500-$3800 for just the set up without shocks. Is it possible to do a suspension swap with other Ranger models that don't have torsion bars?

Sometimes it takes him a day or two to respond when he gets busy. I wouldn't worry though, he always got back to me in a reasonable amount of time. Definitely quality brackets too and a really helpful guy!

Are you running them on your truck? I've been wondering if I get the brackets and all the hardware and eliminating the torsion bars if I'll gain any travel with my stock control arms.

No the conversion won't change any of that. It's totally worth it for the increase in ride quality though!
