ok i wanna lower my 95 ranger xlt but i keep hearin shit about if i dont get the lowered i beams then my wheels will camber hella. what im askin is, if i get juice or bags if i raise it up will it bring the tires to the normal allignment or close to it? also is ther any sites that i can get lowered i beams for UNDER 300 bux each? i checked fbimini.com and they wanted like 350 or somethin crzy like that?

if someone can tell me everything i need to lower my truck right and give some sites to wher i can get the parts that would really be great. thanx for ur time

(oh yea pix will really help me out too)

you can counter act negative camber (the wheels pointing inwards) by extending the upper arms. Im not familiar with a rangers suspension, but it shouldnt be too hard :) Remember - You should align your car to its normal riding height.

youll get increased stability through the twisties :cheesy: j/p



and your tires will wear out alot faster. (inside edges)

If you lower it, and it cambers out, just take it in to a shop and they will put some spacers in the front and have it aligned.

number 1 rangers dont have a arms, number 2 if u juice it or bag it the camber will always be out of wack. the proper way to juice or bag a ranger, or any vehicle with I beams ( 1965-97 ford trucks) is to do a clip swap ( mustang II's and cameros are quite popular, also the valore clip which is torsion bar) as for dropped I beams, go with AIM, djm dream beams blow ass, AIM beams are strong as fuck and cheaper, last i heard they were $369 a pair

You can space the torsion bar mounts on the end. That way they will sit higher with the lower of the car.
