Just got my shipping info, kit scheduled to be here Saturday(assuming it's the entire kit). Have to work this weekend, but I have a couple days off next week. I should be able to get it installed by next Friday.

So I somehow ended up on the F150 lowering kit section of belltech and apparently, they've been using pretty much the same lowering method that is being used on the ranger. Make me feel better about this kit knowing they've been doing the same axle flip/lowering shock combo on the F150 for a while.

I have installed several Belltech F150 kits and they appear to be very similar in design. The basic concept is used by other brands as well like DJM which has shown a no interest in the Ranger at all which is quite puzzling. The quality of the parts you will receive meet or exceed OE specs. The struts and shocks are a major upgrade vs OE. I believe that you will be quite satisfied. I anticipate very few if any problems with fit and installation. I will no soon!

I am 100% confident in Belltechs quality and engineering. Obviously the parts are different but the design standard of our Ranger suspension is tried and true. This isn't Belltechs first rodeo and I will be more than willing to trust them with my truck.

I did notice that the F150 has spacers on the strut for adjustment where as the Ranger design uses a ramped style adjustment.

About to get started. Planned on working in the driveway but, Oklahoma decided to monsoon the 3 days I have off, so I had to squeeze the truck in the garage. Actually surprised it fits with room to spare.

I'm going to try to detail the install best I can to fill in the gaps in the instruction manual. Socket sizes, torque values, and actual height changes, etc. Wish me luck.

@BassRanger are you going to do the 3"/6" settings with OEM shackles or the 2"/4"? All eyes are on you, since Belltech is slow with promo pics. No pressure!
I'm doing the 2/4

Well..... So far Belltech managed to send the wrong install instructions, and I'm missing the lower front shock hardware from both front struts. So, have to make a hardware store run before I can continue.
