So ever since I bought my truck I’ve wondered if the factory F150 Raptor fox shocks would work on a ranger and if they happen to bolt up correctly, what would be the result? Would it lift the truck in the front? How much? Would it ride great or not so great? I have looked and can’t really find anyone with measurements on the bolt pattern for the top of the front strut. I think this would be the main concern. The bottoms of the shocks and the rears are typical bushings that look the same as on the ranger. The overall length is the other variable. I think it would be cool if a guy could buy a F150 raptor setup and pop it on a Ranger.

has anyone else tried this, or own a F150 Raptor we can get some measurements from?

After looking at the price of used sets, you’d be better off getting a set of new remote resi king or fox remote resi shocks. Designed for the ranger, and cheaper.

I can get a set of brand new take offs complete front and rear for half what just the front Kings cost. I don’t really want this thread to be about all the other options out there. I want it to be can these parts interchange and what is the result. Thanks for the response.

I can’t help with the fitment, but my guess would be that they’d be too big and likely a stiffer spring than the lighter Ranger would need.

im not really worried about the spring rate on the front as those can easily be changed.

I’d really just like to know what the lengths are and mount measurements.

Now, if you could find out if the upper and lower control arms from the f150 raptor fit... We would have a cheap and "easy" long travel set up

Good luck with the measurements and if they fit that could be cool.

Agreed. I may just have to go to to the dealership and start measuring one
