    Default Ranger spindle lift

    Ok so I have a ranger edge and I have 31s and I'm thinking about getting a 3" spindle lift. Do you think it would look unproportional with 31s? Some pics of an edge with 31s and spindles would be perfect. Thanks

    Honestly a 32" looks perfect with stock fenders and a 3" spindle lift, but 31s look good too. They just don't fill the fender as much so it might make the tires look a little smaller. I had 31s on mine with a spindle and really liked it. Then put 32s on it and now I have 33s haha. They all look good except the 33 fills the fender a little too much with stock fenders for my liking but I deal with it for the time being until I get glass. 31s, 32s, and 33s all look good and you will get used to the look if at first you don't like it a ton.

    3" Springtech spindle, 6400 shackles, 33x1050 KM2s on 15x7 Methods. If you go with Springtech, youre gonna have to do this so you dont lose youre brakes at full lock




    I just installed a set on my 05 and it was easy, just had to do some cutting/grinding/drilling...their instructions suck ass and the fit is OK

    extended brake lines is the real solution.

    Put in a steering stop a bolt with a jam nut might work for you

    X2. You lose your brakes because the caliper hits the lower control arm near full lock. Put a bolt to stop the spindle before the caliper makes contact with the lca.

    see the top pic? I got rid of the stock bump stop nipple thing...then kinda eye balled where the spindle would hit the LCA and I drilled a hole there, put a bolt in it. I just added washers to push the bolt head out so it would hit the spindle before the caliper touched the LCA.
