    If you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
    Stanced. Demon camber. You may know it as oni-camber. You've seen the look, and whether you like it or not is totally beside the point. The great thing about this stanced look is that it gets your attention. From the interviews we've read with owners and drivers of these machines, that is exactly what they are after. They've said that it's all about being noticed.
    Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.

    2003 Ford Ranger | Posted by David | (Nolanville, TX)

    I am a USPS Rural Mail Carrier and use my 2003 Ford Ranger to deliver mail. It has 250K + miles on it and it takes a beating. Started to have issues with almost all of the rubber bushings dry rotting (steering, chassis and rear end). Handling started to be an issue. Ordered the complete kit (4.18126R) for the Ranger. Took me almost four weeks to completely install the kit, but, mostly due to work schedule, tools, and Ford making it nearly impossible to get some of the old bushings out. The kit (ordered the red color) looks great, really sharpens up the look of the under carriage. Just got the alignment done and handling is better than when the ranger was new. The only issue I had with the kit was the rear spring shackle bushings. They are too big in diameter to fit into the shackle eye and I could not use them. I had to buy new shackles and settle with the standard rubber bushings they come with. This is an awesome product but read and heed the instructions before you start installation. This is a very labor intense and special tool requirement installation. As the instructions state, If you are not qualified to perform the installation (I add tools also) then have it performed by a qualified tech.
