    Default Ranger T6 lift kit

    Hi community.

    I have a T6 Ranger 4x4 and am looking at fitting the 50mm lift kit from
    WR OFFROAD in pretoria the kit is called "Level-It". This is like the Stofpad kit, it is basically spacer rings that go between the shock and the shock tower. They also do a longer shackle kit for the rear.

    the kit together with installation and wheel alignment is +-R3700

    has anyone had this installed? any comments on wheel alignment problems, handling changes etc would be greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone know of any problems with this type of ki on other vehicles?

    Sorry the quote was R3 380
    but my question is not really the price.
    I need to know how it affects roadholding, general drivability.
    I am asking as my vehicle is used daily on the roads of jhb.

    Hi Andrew

    I fitted quite n bit spacer lifts on the Ranger T6, some with Extended shackle and some with the Loadhog helper spring, I used both spacers from Stofpad and from WR Off Road and both products work very well, Stofpad spacer looks better

    As far as i know there is no difference in road handling with the spacer lift, Here is a couple guys on the Forum who i did fitment for and they don't have any problems

    Regards
    Riaan

    Hi Riaan.

    Thanx for your advise.
    what is the pricing for the stofpad spacers and shackles with fitment and wheel alignment with you?

    I have Ironman springs in front with a 50mm spacer total lift 60mm at the back a 50mm longer than standard 25mm lift shackle and a helper spring 35mm lift total 60mm, I felt that the bakkie was top heavy but fitted 30mm spacer on the wheels and now it fine and handles corners like the standard bakkie. I ve now removed the spacers and fitted aftermarket rims with a 50mm offset and I am happy.

    Hi Marius
    have you got any photos of your vehicle? I am not sure I want to go for full replacement spring and shock setup, I just thought the 50mm spacer lift kit would assist with ground clearance, especially the break over angle as the T6 is very long and scraping the running boards is almost guaranteed offroad.

    Hi I don't have but you are welcome to contact me if you are in the East Rand, Kempton Park, we can then meet. I had the same issue with the Ranger when I decided on the suspension mod.

    Riaan, which do you suggest is better between extended rear shackle and the Loadhog helper spring.
    Prices?

    Yes, I've had a 40mm lift on the front (new coils) for about a year and a bit, the back looked like it was sagging a bit.
    I've just installed the extended shackles, took me around 40 minutes, looks better. Provided a 30mm lift.

    The rear shackles that connect chassis to leaf spring is replaced with extended ones. This pushes the body up.
