WHAT ARE THE LIFT HEIGHTS AVAILABLE FOR FORD RANGER MODELS?
Our online range currently lists Ford Ranger lift kits of the following heights:
- 1.5 inch lift kits (40mm lift)
- 2 inch lift kits (50mm lift)
- 3 inch lift kits (75mm lift Front & 50mm Rear)
Please note that all height classifications are for generalisation purposes only and that the degree of raised or lowered heights may vary between part numbers and vehicles.
Variations can be caused by different accessories fitted, variations of materials used for added accessories, age and condition of the vehicle, weight of the engine and changes made to the vehicle after install i.e adding accessories or removing constant load.
How to lift a Ford Ranger?
Raising the ride height of your 4x4 Ford Ranger can be achieved by fitting a lift kit.
Depending on the particular model variant, a lift kit usually consists of raised leaf springs, raised coil springs or upgraded torsion bars as well as long travel shocks and other fitting components.
Extended rear shackles and front strut spacers are also another lift option.
Factory Torsion bars can be adjusted or wound up to raise the front ride height of the vehicle. The same can be achieved with aftermarket upgraded Torsion bars, which are included in our kits. When doing so it is important to ensure sufficient droop is maintained.
Replacing the standard leaf or coil springs with raised springs will increase the ride height.
Raised Leaf and Coil springs are designed with a heavier grade material over the OE springs and varying spring rates are available to suit accessories fitted or constant load carrying.
When fitting raised springs we always recommend fitting long travel shocks.
How to install a Ranger lift kit?
Installing suspension parts should always be completed by a qualified person or at a licensed workshop.
If you choose to install the kit yourself we can supply assembled front struts for ease of installation. This option is available for Ranger models from 11/2011 onwards.
Strut Assembly is an additional $180 and includes two new top mounts and labour to assemble the parts.
PXIII Ranger Strut Assembly is $270 due to specialty top mounts required.
Once the installation is complete, a wheel alignment is required.
If you choose to install the kit yourself we strongly recommend taking the vehicle to a suspension workshop for a check-over. Most workshops offer free or inexpensive inspections. Better to be safe than sorry!
Step-by-step instructions are not included with all parts and only basic instructions are included where required. You can also refer to the vehicle owner's manual if required.
