    Broken leafsprings

    Hi i have a 2000 ranger. The middle leaves on both side broke. I'm wondering if the leaves from an explorer will fit. I searched on this and all the rangers i found were from the 90s or 80s. :o Is there a difference between the 2000 ranger and the earlier rangers? I'm thinking about getting...

    I'm in the middle of replacing the front wiper motor on my 93' ex. The problem is the clip connecting the motor to the linkage. :banghead: :banghead: I've tried both access panels and still cant get it off. Any advice? A picture of the clip would be nice. The manual dosent help at all. :fire:

    I have a 84' 5.0 thats rated at 175 hp for my 83' mustang. And since i have a M5OD-R1 tranny on hand. Will it bolt up? This 5.0 is not really powerful. I saw other posts about why you shouldnt use it and thats for built up 5.0s. Just wanted to know.

    Possible to blow manual hubs?

    I found the problem. The right axle shaft went in so there was nothing for the hub to grab onto and since this is a open diffy it gave the illusion of a b0rked hub. This sounds expensive. I pulled the shaft back out and slipped the hub back on. Will it be fine or not?

Got stuck and almost injured when my friend pulled too hard and snapped his tow hook off. :eek: Now, i looked under and saw the driveshaft moving but the tires dont move.

    Does leaf drop brackets exist?

    Ok, in front I have 4 inch bds drop brackets for axles, 4 inch skyjacker coils 2 inch daystar(I think) spacers. So that's 6 inchs suspension. Now, I want my explorer to grow not shrink. I still haven't heard anything from you guys about f150 leafs I assume they're a bad idea or what?

    Does leaf drop brackets exist?

    I don't know how to weld and don't know anyone who does. There's a lot of junkyards that I know of that should have f150 leafs. I have 7 inchs in back from body lift, shackles aal so that's about 7 inchs max.

    Does leaf drop brackets exist?

    Already trimmed. But I'm sure i have enough room. But I just put in the new coils today. I don't want to go through the hassle of taking out the spacers. :( . F-150 leafs seems easier. :D

    Does leaf drop brackets exist?

    I'm running 35s so that's not a good idea. What about F-150 leafs?

    Does leaf drop brackets exist?

    I recently lifted my front end with new coils. So i have a total of 9 inchs of lift in the front and 7-8 in the back. I already have shackles and aal so i'm wondering if there's a drop bracket that exists for the front part of the leaf. I'm running out of money here and don't want to go for soa.

    Replace Egr with non EGR?

    A friend of mine needs a new engine for his 93' sport. He currently has a egr equipped 4.0. He found a non-egr engine. Will it work? His state has no emission laws so it shouldnt be a problem but are the computers compatible?

    I'll be making the ascension to 35s soon. :D :D All I'll need is a 2 inch lift in the front to keep it safe. Don't worry pics soon. :confused:

    Method of finding out if open or LS

    I heard that if you jack up your axle including the tires. It is possible to find out if you have open or lsd. Now I did this to my front axle and the tires rotated in opposite directions. Does this mean open?

    Power Loss with 32s

    I had 33s with 3.27 gears before. They were more like 34s though. The power loss was tolerable. Iff you have 3.55 or 3.73 You'll be fine.

    Ah good fun..

    Yup, I remember. Did you make it home on the water? My truck is still overheating now :banghead: And my alternator went out last night but its fine now. Does Delta Sonic have an engine cleaning service? I sprayed my radiator with a high pressure hose 3 times so far and its not helping.
