    If they come out with a lower rear leaf set that maintains the load capacity (or close) and lowers it to level or an inch higher than level, I'll definitely buy a set.

    Not my trucks, but I might also need to lower mine yet.
    The rear easy, flip the axle
    The front end on all of the US trucks looks to use the same shock as the Hi Rider trucks here in Thailand.
    The shocks have a 3 inch extension on the bottom of it.
    I'll try and post pics of the differences between my std cab normal height version later, but basically the std version doesn't have the extension.
    The coil springs are the same length.

    That's the difference between the lo Ranger version available worldwide except USA.
    Oh and the axle sits on top the leaf spring from the factory.

    @Hansgti,
    Thanks for posting more photos. You said the rear axle sits above the leaf springs from the factory in your country.
    Could you please measure the length of the urethane bump stops on your truck. The US bump stops are just a bit over 100 mm - 4 inches long for the under the spring mounted rear axle. There is a photo of the bump stop on post #15 from @Rinn69 on page one of this thread. It's in the lower left on the picture.
    Does your bump stop look like that?

    I just made a bunch of inquiries to:

    A local (Phoenix, AZ) custom leaf spring manufacturer, DJM Suspension, Eibach and Belltech with regards to development of products for us 19 Ranger 2wd owners interested in lowering. Giving them an idea of the amount of owners on here interested and asked about the possibility of getting one of our trucks in their hands to evaluate.

    Most excited about my inquiry to Hotchkis, I had a full performance Hotchkis kit on my Dakota R/T back in the day and it was incredible.

    I'll let y'all know what I hear. Thanks

    Yes I am interested. Located in St. George, Utah and willing to drive to PHX if they need to see a 2wd Ranger.

    Mine is a 4x4, but the rear should be the same....unless someone knows for sure if there is a difference between the 2 and 4 wheel drive rear end :question:

    Belltech rep said they'd forward on to their R&D team. Still the only ones to respond so far.
