Really
it has leaf springs in the rear, and torsion bars in the front
What would you guys make for it?
98 explorer sport 2wd

We have blocks for the rear, but I cant find **** on the front.
We adjusted the torsion bars and dropped the front a bit, but we cant keep it like that on top of that its not low enough

Go to Google.com
in the little box at the top type this, exactly as shown including quotation marks:
"drop spindles" "ford explorer"
Now you have a choice. either click on Goggle Search or hit the enter key.

Aren;t the torsion bars adjustable???


On the 75 Dart I had, you could turn this bolt under the LCA and it would lower the front

They don't have IFS in the front...it's Ford's retarded *** IFS/Solid front axle crap that uses Ibeams.

And you cant cut the spring because they are leaf springs in the rear.

So what you can do is get shorter coils for up front and then take out 1 leaf from the pack in the rear.

There are no coils up front and there is only one leaf in the back

tighten the torsion bars & get an axle flip kit for the rear.

ah jeez....

ok for the record, I have blocks for the rear already. If i flip the axle on this thing it will raise the car (IE, its already on top the axle from the factory.)

I have already tightend the Torsion bars, They dont move enough to drop the car the 4" i want. Nor do i want to leave them like that.

THere is no coils in the front and the rear only has one leaf.
anything else i didnt say 2-3 times yet?

So with that said, I NEED DROP SPINDLES for the front!
