    92 Radius arm & ball joint

    500 is really all that bad, i think i paid 320 for radius arms and 320 for ball joints. that seemed a little high for me but i also got them done at different times so i didnt save on labor, if you are mechanically inclined then yeah you can do it, but i would take it in, next time i will be...

    35's on a 98 EB??? Possible?!

    you dont need new shocks in the rear after a spring over, all your doing is flipping them around so the aquired lift accomodates the length between the shock mounts.

    5.5" Superlift

    i dont know if you've decided on installing the lift yourself, i did my own lift and with just one other person it took us about 2 1/2 days not working very hard at all. this is the best advice i cvould give you, take your rig to an alignment shop, have them cut out all the rivets and replace...

    Installed 3" bl need a 4x4 shift lever... help

    for the steering you may need to get either a universal u-joint made by borgeson. or you may need to get a whole new steering shaft, either made by borgeson or flaming river, thats pretty much the only thing that will make the steering better

    HUGE xplorer!

    self install lift kit???

    after i installed the lift i took mine to an alignment shop and had them weld the spring perches to the axle tubing. it just keeps the perches from moving causing all kinds of problems

    What brand of lift??

    oh sorry, your probably gonna pay around 1200 to 1300 and that is for everything, including brakelines,shocks, everything

    What brand of lift??

    personally i would go with a 5.5 superlift, it has worked out well for me. it depends where you get it, i would try rocky mountain suspension, they are pretty cheap, also when you order the kit, ask for part #133 instead of 118 on the coil springs,also get the extended radius arms. you can...

    self install lift kit???

    if your gonna put the lift on yourself, im telling you, take your explorer to like an alignment shop and have them cut out your rivets for you and they will replace them with bolts, it will save you almost a day of work and will cost you likely around 50 bucks. also you dont need air tools i did...

    Black Rockcrawlers for my friend

    i would go with 3.75 backspacing, also some explorers have different gear ratio's. my friend has a 92 with 3.73's and i have a 93 with 3.27's. so its pretty much all different, crawl underneath his rig, there should be a tag on his rear differential that says his gear ratio. also dont even waste...

    So there I was...

    oh i almost forgot, when you order your lift, tell them you want part #133 for your coil springs, they will order #118 instead, the 118's are for rangers, the 133's wont end up sagging like the 118's,um i think thats it.what color is your explorer?

    So there I was...

    i fit 33's without any rubbing at all, i will eventually go to 35's in the future, i figure a little hackin at the fenders, maybe some coil spacers, maybe i mean real maybe if i make it into a trail only rig i will get some of perrys fenders. but yeah 35's is in my plans. i have been satisfied...

    So there I was...

    if you dont want to do the lift yourself thats cool too. if you want to get it the cheapest 4wheelparts will charge you a shi* load of money and will qoute you a really high price, so this is what you do, go to the store, but a FOUR WHEELER magazine, turn to the page that ROCKY MOUNTAIN...

    Lifting without extending

    ok let me say that i had a 3inch body lift on my rig before i got my 5.5superlift, a body lift was good for a little lift and be able to throw decent size tires on it, there are some downsides to getting a body lift, your car will ride like shi*, every bump you take you will feel it, and the...
