    ... and to add would it be cost effective to buy ucas and lcas seperate and all components and kinda shop around for specific parts for the front end or is it better just to nut up and get a tc or camburg lt kit?!:confused:

    you should get a kit not mix and match. all kits are different lengths and use different geometry to make work properly so use only parts from each together. and good luck finding a used LT kit they come up very rarely and when they do they go fast

    what kind of offroading do you door want to do? i know its been said a million times before in other forums but its not simply bolting a front LT kit and calling it a day expect your truck to be kind of a money pit, or opening a can of worms. the front kit comes first usually cause its cheaper. then rear leafs or links. then roll cage. then you will want to upgrade your spindles and maybe convert to 12" coils up front which will require an engine cage. my suggestion is do a ton of research on what you want to do. anyone will tell you to get the rear done first which is smart. and get a roll cage it will save your life.

    Hey so i have a friend of my buddy that worked at a well known lift kit company and he said he could extend stock lca's 2 inches and it would work with say camburg or tc uca's and then all the rest he can help me out with... has anyone heard of fabricatin OEM LCA'S to extend them cause he has done it before on a ranger and said it worked great. what feedback do you guys have?

    Sounds like serious trouble if it's not done correctly not to mention a stock lca isn't beefy enough to beat on it in an LT sense. Not worth cutting that corner. To save you a few bucks. You'll probably break more shit if your lca snaps than the proper lt lca

    and please tell me your not talking about the red ford ranger that drove around with hack fab cut and extended lowers in el cajon. here are a few reasons:
    1) working at 4 wheel parts installing lift kits does not mean you automatically know what your doing when it comes to BUILDING suspension. bolting something on vs. actually start to finish fabrication are two very different animals

    2) dont be a retard and end up killing someone with your sketchy ass truck. do it right the first time or dont do it at all. this sport isnt here for the people looking to cut corners... if you want to cut corners.... look into possibly becoming a mason installer.
