What suspension is under the new STX

I was looking into buying a new STX, does it have the torsion bars, I want something that I can get low without having issues, so no more Edges.

no, sorry bro, the stx's have coil springs up front, very easy to lower, springs are cheap and so is a rear flip kit or shackle flip

the stx's are just like the xlt's, same height and everything except they have the fx4 instrument panel and a carbon fiber radio bezel and the front valence is cooler and they have the split 5 spoke 15x7s just like mine.

your current ranger is better looking. They only have those interior upgrades and the front grille and valence, just get an xlt cause it looks like you will change it anyways, you cant get side skirts that exactly match the front valence. I would love to have the white faced gauges with the silver gauge bezel in my 05 xlt though.

I am the second owner, I think it was ordered that way, It also came with cruise control which is also strange for a f-speed. I love having the manual. Might just make it my secondary vehicle and keep it.

middle of page: XL, STX and XLT's 4x2 all have coils up front.

Dude I love you truck the way it is. Its like a mini SVT Lightning, all you need is a supercharger.

if you want an xlt or stx soo bad, lets trade! Read my sig for specs plus an eaton posi, color matched snug top tanneau cover and under lined with matching carpet to match my bed rug liner. I have the same rims as the stx and the truck is charcoal grey, actually, here is a link to my cardomain...

I also have adapters to put lightning 18s on it or even the 20s that fit 97-03 f-150s, when I thought I would lower it and make it a mini lightning. its a four door.
