For example you can Lower the upper control arm by about 2 inches if you bolt the brackets on upside down. Im...

    Daniel's Adventure Vehicle Extraordinare (D.A.V.E)

    Hello to all out there, I've been using this forum for information gathering for the last 6 months as I was gifted a 92 explorer (Eddie Bauer 4wd) in the middle of 2020. I've probably invested too many hours to keep track of. There was a leak in the sunroof (as I've read they often do) which...

    “Explorer” on 3rd gen hood

    After seeing how “Explorer” looks on the hoods of the new Sport Ex’s I said I had to have it on my hood. So I went to the junkyard and pulled the letters off of the door of my same body style Ex. I used 3M double sided auto tape to tape them on.
