3" Suspension Lift for Stock Suspension - CA

I have 3" lift spindles, uniball upper a-arms, lift shackles and 2" add a leafs for trade for stock parts. My truck is a 2001 2WD Ranger with coil over springs in the front. I'll post pics up in a bit. I'd like who ever is interested to head to my shop in Temecula, CA one day where we'll do the swap. Not asking for money, just trade. You'll be getting an awesome deal on a lift. Everything is still in good condition on my truck, just taking it back stock so I can focus on other projects.

I have 32x11.5R15 BFG All Terrains with 20% tread left for partial trade and cash for stock tires. Not asking for a bunch, so show me what you have and we'll figure out something. I have a tire machine at the shop so we can change rims or not. I'm open to ideas. Let em fly...

what stock parts are you looking for? I've got stock spindles, stock coils, stock shackles, and stock UCA's (with blown BJ's).

Same city too...

Want
Front: Spindles (knuckle included), upper a arms
Rear: Shocks and shackles.

Have
Front: Fabtech 3" spindles (knuckle included), custom chromoly a arms with uniball. The spindles are modified and require these a arms.
Rear: Shocks (longer Gabriel shocks, not my fox shocks but are for sale), Longer shackles, 2" pro comp add a leaf (already removed from my springs). I should add, the shackles and the spindles make the truck sit fairly level. I added the add a leafs so I can carry extra weight. So they are really not necessary unless you plan on tossing on 2000 lbs.

Everything else is stock (coils, front shocks, lower a arms, rear leaf springs). Depending on the wear difference between the brake rotors I'd be up for swapping the whole mess. Just to avoid having to mess with bearings.

If you can replace the blown ball joints I'd be up for it.

Im not looking to swap parts truck to truck but instead parts I have uninstalled; easier for you in the end.

I was planning on using them for various purposes (stock snouts to swap for strength or if I ever go camburg, stock shackles for when/if I get deavers and need to flip the shackle, etc.)

I threw out the stock shocks a while ago unfortunately but here is what I do have.









Every thing is dirty but otherwise functional. Im not sure what you mean by spindle knuckle but this is how they came off my truck, im not missing anything afaik. Also the UCA balljoints can't be swapped on stock arms, you need the full UCA assembly with a new BJ.

For the rear I already have lift shackles but I do need someone to help me install some OEM lift blocks so maybe we can work something out?

Spindle is the part the where the bearings & rotor run on. The machined piece. The knuckle is the cast piece the spindle is pressed into. Everyone calls the whole unit a spindle, which is incorrect.

I understand the ball joints themselves can not be swapped out. That's why i had the uniball arms made overkill, when mine wore out. Either way I don't want to trade for broken stuff. Kind of unfair to me since my set is worth way more than stock in good condition. If you can get a hold of good upper ball joints then I'll trade part for part. The rear shocks I have installed are off my off-road trailer. It would do me good to keep them and buy stock stocks, so no worries on that.

Ah got it, I always called that part the snout and the entire piece the spindle.

I've got an early class tomorrow but maybe after I can stop by autozone or something and see what they have in stock and for how much. A buddy got some new ones for $30 each so I know it should be somewhere in that region. Do you want to PM me your number and I can text you tomorrow?

yeatzee & 2004xlmiller knock off your pissing match. I have no patience for idiots and will happily tell both of you to pound sand. Take it elsewhere.

I figured this would be an awesome deal for someone wanting to step up while I move on to other projects. While in reality I should just sell my setup, buy stock parts and pocket the rest. Though, me attempting to be the nice guy clearly isn't working. Who ever can meet what I'm asking for FIRST, well then that person gets the deal. PERIOD!

Snout is another name. Knuckle is just what I've used.
