Our friends over at Fox released the part numbers, pricing, and some preliminary info for their 2019 Ranger 2.0 Coilovers and 2.0 Performance Series Rear Shocks.

Needless to say, we're pretty pumped. We're working on getting a set of both in for photos and an install on our own Ranger.

We'll have some more info on availability hopefully soon™.

Definitely will get the shocks. Not interested in leveling but I had Fox w/ BDS lift on my 2015 F150 and nothing compares to them! Good news

Is this "special" pre-order pricing or the expected MSRP?

This is pricing straight from Fox and is their MSRP/MAP pricing.

After putting a 1000 miles on my truck..and all commute miles, I'm pretty disappointed in the extremely sloppy handling. It's made worse with the flat slippery seats. Someone yesterday mentioned it feels like a lifted 57 Bel Air. I literally slide a little in my seat when carefully taking a turn. I came to a turning stop today in a parking lot exiting to the road and the truck rocked back and forth/side to side a couple times.

Would a simple change to coil overs and shock fix the situation?

Possibly. We're going to do a full range of testing on a couple of different suspension setups.

Right now we're running a BDS 2" Level with NX2 Shocks on our own Ranger, which we'll be putting through the ringer shortly.

The real question right now is if the sloppy handling is all due to the stock shocks and coilovers or if the stock leaf packs are partly to blame for the wallow.

Aftermarket coilovers and shocks would definitely help, but we're not quite sure yet if they're going to be a one-stop solution as yet.

There's no rear sway bar. My guess is that adding one would be not too difficult, and would go a long way towards comforting the ride by reducing body roll.

Very interested to hear your impressions on these. I don't currently own a ranger but I test drove a non fx4 truck on Friday and was very disappointed with the driving experience. Hell my 2017 Escape drives way better than the ranger. I'm going to go back to test an fx4 to see if it drives better. If you are very happy with this kit I might order a non fx4 and add this kit. Otherwise I may shop for a different truck.

What were you expecting when you compared the driving experience of an Escape to a truck? It doesn't make much sense to compare a body on frame truck to a Focus based unibody crossover. What are your expectations?

If the Fox 2.0s on the F150s are any indicator, the 2.0s on the Rangers should be a pretty major improvement.

The only question we have right now is if they're going to be the only thing required to get rid of all the wallow out of the rear end.

We shall see.

There *is* the ability to make this truck tighter. ROW Rangers, at least the Rangers I drove in Asia, are much tighter. They don't wallow around like the US Ranger. Granted, the US Ranger seems to float over road imperfections more so than the overseas offerings so it's another one of the US market tweaks (like wider/softer seats) Ford made to our Rangers. Many like it, so Ford made the right choice, some don't, and those of us that don't are left searching for an improvement. I can't see keeping this more than 2 or 3 years, so just going deal with it.

I completely agree with you! It's a tad soft up front for my taste as well, but I don't think it's necessarily a "bad" thing. I just don't understand why Hairball is comparing this truck's ride to an Escape.
