mustang II suspension

I'm doing a M2 suspension on the front of my 94 ranger. I was wondering if I should get the 2" drop spindles instead of the stock ones. I built the sfbd frame and the beams suck. Also before anyone says yota clip it, that's not what I'm doing there are no Toyota pickups here lol. Thanks for any help. Joe

Re: mustang II suspension

What size wheels? Youll usually want the drop spindles, otherwise youll have to set it up way too high to lay out. They dont have that much travel so you have to set it up to lay right when everything binds.

Re: mustang II suspension

Re: mustang II suspension

as long as you dont use an M2 lower ball joint, you should get reasonable travel without snapping off ball joints on a bagged truck in the process.
