    Hey Guys!
    I have a 99 4.0 SOHC 2WD that im looking to upgrade the front suspension on. Its near stock, just has a simple lift with fox shocks on it but looking for a kit to basically replace a lot of the stock components that seems to be slowly but surely going out on me.
    What kits are out there that could be for a bit of off roading but not too overboard to have on a daily driver? Ive been trying to look around with little to no success.

    Thanks in advance! :exporange

    No big deal, there is a ton of useful info on this site, I use it all the time to fix/upgrade my Explorer, this is seriously one of, if not the best Vehicle specific forums I have ever visited. Have fun, and be sure to post pictures of your progress!!!

    That kind of brings me to one of my side questions which is Are ranger aftermarket components interchangeable with explorers? Often time when looking for aftermarket kits or parts they'll have ranger or f150 but not explorer. Thanks in advance! Apologies for the rookie questions.

    98 to i believe 01 or 02 rangers are the same. You could google some parts or even search like autozone and compare part numbers to find the end year.

    That's great info to know! That really broadens what I'm actually able to look for or even purchase. Thank you so much!
