You can find out what bars you have by opening your door and looking at the door tag. under "SPR", you'll see something similar tothese: BBKK, 11CC, BK, 1C.

BBKK = B front torsion bars, K rear leafs
1C = #1 front torsion bars, C rear leafs.


It's the highest stock spring rate torsion bar offered in our trucks(675 i believe? but idk.)

My tag says mine is FFCC. What kind do I have?

Thats what i have. You have #1 bars and not sure about the springs. i think they are the stiff leafsprings cause I have the towing package. Im running new leafs anyway though.

My 06 FX4 says "11KK"

I'm not all that knowledgable about the suspension specs. But this FX4 rides stiffer than all the XLT 4x4s I test drove. I would assume this means I have the stiffest springs available?

C rears are the stiffest i've seen on a ranger. Almost always coupled with the 'heavy duty towing pkg'.


I'm not sure about this....but the logic on ford spring rates: 1-2 a-z. lower the number = stiffer the spring. followed by letters. Kinda like this....1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f g h i j k.....something like that. Not exactly sure...but torsion bars are as follows: ordered from stiffest to softest: 1 B F.

Am I getting my point across? That's a lot of babble i wrote above. lol.

Yes...believe all Fx4 L2's got #1 bars and C leafs.

super easy. take a 1/2 drive ratchet and a 13mm socket, follow the bars back to the brackets on the frame. Under the brackets, you'll see the bolts....righty tighty = taller balla. lefty loosy = lowered poosy. lol.

Only that yours will eventually start to sag over time. Only advantage is that the stiffer ones won't say as easily.
