    1993 XLT Lift Questions - Will This Work?

    so the cheapest way without doing the axle drop brackets would be to get the 2" sky jacker and then the 3" body?? or would I get just as much out of doing the coil spacers + shackles and the 3" body lift??

    Cheapest Front End Lift to go with SOA??

    OH SORRY GUYS!!! I meant to mention its not the '97 I used to have it is a 1993 2WD 4Dr XLT. I don't think they make spindles for that year and I don't think it even has torsion bars. Thank you though for the help

    PBS Show on Rollovers

    i think people are stupid when they critisize the explorer for rollover accidents and deaths and everything. when you think about it most of the time its rollovers happen because the drivers flip out and don't know what to do (i.e. - tire blows out , hydroplane, etc.) then they flip their X's...

    body lift on a 97 2WD??

    ok i have done plenty of searches and research on them, but no one has actually mentioned how the bumper brackets need to be so I don't have to buy the set from PA. I have read that you can just straighten the one's in the 853 kit out and it'll work. is this true?? also, anyone who has...

    body lift on a 97 2WD??

    bumper brackets? also i really am mainly worried about what I need to do with the bumper brackets. I got the '95 - '97 Ranger kit (#853) because I figured it would be cheaper to get the bumper brackets than the steering extension. Now I'm hoping to just modify or make my own brackets...

    Hooking up Neons....

    hey bmxboy, how exactly did you mount that light behind the grille?? i have one on behind my grille but it moves quite a bit. I used L-Bracket and Flat Bracket combine with C-Clamps but it swings from side to side. letting me know exactly how you did it would be greatly appreciated. thanx

    My Great Idea!?!

    well i just have TT/Shackle and 235/75R15's and i think it looks fine with lift and small tires. So I think that it would look pretty good leaving the 31's with the 3" body. the only thing you would have to look out for is body roll because you'll still have 10.5's compared to 12.5's. If i...

    My Great Idea!?!

    Matt, you should get the 95-97 whenever I do and we can both fabricate our own bumper brackets together. thats what I plan on doing cuz my friend knows how to weld and using a cutting torch. It can't be that hard with just a few little strips of metal. If you don't want to go ahead and get...

    ALL 95+ 2WD X's??????

    well how hard is a Spring Over Axle to do?? what are the tools and parts I need to do one?? does anyone have any post with pictures and instructions on how to do it?? thanx
  32. D

    CV joint angles???

    nope trust me i have CV Joints because they tell all of us 2WD not to go higher than like 2" with the TT because our CV Joint angles will be too high and could snap the CV Joints. I think that all IFS suspensions have CV Joints, both 2WD and 4WD

    What lift and tires are all the 2WD running?? i'm not sure how big I should go....since I have a 2WD. I wanted to go 8" (TT/Shackle, 3" Spindle Kit, & 3" Body) and run 35's but someone told me it would be too much stress on the front axle. But Brian has a 2WD on 35's and it looks bad ass...
  36. D

    CV joint angles???
