    • @ChrisFix I thought I saw some rust when you was removing the suspension but I'm probably seeing you things or some dirt there.

    • @ChrisFix I clicked on the link in the description to buy some coilovers for my vehicle, but the website doesn't have options for my vehicle. Can you give a budget reccomendation for a 1987 Ford Ranger?

  • I just put Coilovers on my car myself, does anyone know why the front passenger wheel would have less than a finger of clearance between the wheel and the Coilover but the drivers side has about an inch clearance. The drivers side wheel sticks out past the fender more than the passenger side as well, I just got an alignment so it has to be something to do with the Coilover.

I heard I’d have to upgrade my OEM coil over to an aftermarket coil over and an after market sway bar for the front and rear. Any suggestions?
