Front Suspension Kit for 2003 Ford Ranger with 2wd and Torsion Bars
The kit was complete, relatively easy to install and gave my suspension a new-like feel.
July 30, 2017
All good except........
All parts except the inner tie rod ends were correct and fit perfectly. Your inner tie rods were the wrong part for my vehicle, found that out while I had the car up and taken apart so I had no choice but to run to the local parts store for correct parts and added cost.
October 14, 2017
Good product for the price point. Flawless transaction. Wouldve been cooler if anything had grease fittings instead of being sealed. However, id buy again if i was in a non performance application, no questions.

Perfect
They are the best! Good quality parts right at your door super fast! Good quality people ready to help

All but one...
The price was right for the kit, but one of the outer tie rods had to be replaced at a local parts store. It was obviously loose when I installed it - could be moved by hand - easily.

for sport ? cause i know some are not.
Destiny C February 9, 2017
I put mine on a 2000 Ford Explorer SLT. Its a base model 4 dr. Im not sure if the Sport Model is the same, youd need to take a look under the vehicle. This is not for a 4wd though. I purchased this kit, and a set of shocks, and that pretty much rebuilt the entire front end suspension.
David T February 9, 2017
We would be more than happy to assist you. Please provide the year of your Ford Explorer Sport so we may identify direct fit replacements.
Alex P February 14, 2017
Will this fit on a 21001 Ford Explorer xlt awd? Would like to know which suspension control arm kit would fit best?
Kennethia R June 13, 2017
This kit will be correct for your 2001 Explorer as long as you have the 2-piece design passenger side control arm. This kit includes the outer RH control arm.
Tim K June 13, 2017
