Hey i just bought this ranger custom. I knew the front end was like this when i bought it. The guy put in way to long of springs too. I am open to ideas on what you would do to fix this. Also if anyone has a shop and know what they are doing and is willing to help me out, i will pay them.http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t22/Travis_Schmidt/018_zps044ec80d.jpg I want to move this front leaf mount back because its sticking out way to much. http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t22/Travis_Schmidt/014_zpsc9b89129.jpg I was going to get a smaller shackle and try to find a shorter leaf

Do shackles through the frame, it'll let you decide where to put the shackle and keep the leafs.
That front hanger doesn't seem terribly sturdy either.

What front diff is in it more pictures would be good and info on it
Hard to say what to do both the ranger and explorer I did full width dana 44 s in
Used coills and radius arms check out stockwheels build

Yea the pictures are pretty bad dont show much ill take more tomorrow morning. Its a dana 35 in the front with 4:10 gears. Its got a dana 30 in the back with 3:73, havnt matched them yet. Its got bilstein 5150 all around 12" travel in the front 14" in the back. On 33 mud terrains
Yea that hanger is going to need to be redone as well
If i keep the leafs wont and do the shackles through the frame, wont the front leaf mounts still be sticking out to far? If i hit something i will be hitting the mounts

The front leaf mounts are out of this world.

I'd hate to tear one of them off while givin'r shit

the springs being long is good just the mounting of them is hack some one would need to take a good look at it to figure out the proper fix. its not so simple with a leaf front to just carelessly move stuff around

Cherrybombs

I want shorter springs so that i dont have to change as much, they have 58" springs. If i got say 53" springs and i cut that shackle so the leaf goes in that middle hole i will only have to change the front mount. Then it wont be sticking out as far either

The big thing is what else is Fabed like that
And with springs you need to also keep in mind what the measurement
From spring eye to center pin as well
The springs in it are posibly explorer or f150 rears

Cherrybombs
01-20-2014, 09:06 PM
Your exactly right on that one, they are f150 rears. I guess i could of said that, just took couple of hoots[stoned]
Are all the springs in all f150s the same? if not these are 2.5" wide and im not sure what measurement from the spring eye to centre pin is

I looked at it the other day when I seen it out up Sylvester, its auctually a 8.8 rear, and a dana 30 front, looks like chevy 63" leafs in the front, completely hack job fab work, whoever did it, you can find a 4.10 carrier at garys auto wrecking, out of a 4cyl jeep dood,

Cherrybombs
01-20-2014, 09:19 PM
I did measure the springs they are 58"

StinkFinger
01-20-2014, 09:35 PM
58 should be f150 rears they will be a 2-1/2" spring and there nice and flexy

I was in your shoes a few year back when I bought my s10, best option is to figure out what you want to do and cut it out and start from scratch, that way your not dealing with someone elses hack job.......my 2 cents[cheers]

Whats up with the shocks? Are the angled in from the top down?

And is that pitman arm on backwards? I'm a toyota guy so maybe its just me but I thought they were supposed to point backwards.

Happypants
