Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
The shop that installed my lift suggested I replace my tie rod ends. My truck has 125,000 miles and the lift has been on the truck for a good majority of the miles. The steering isn't stiff but the shop says it's recommended. What do I look for if it needs replacing? Also, I have a 5 1/2 fabtech suspension lift with 33in tires.
To be honest, I have no experience with the changes necessary when lifting a truck's suspension. All of my work on trucks has been limited to routine maintenance and repairs. With a 5.5" lift and the associated changes in suspension geometry, I wouldn't know where to start in telling you what you'd need. I don't want to steer you wrong, so I'm going to suggest you post this in the general vehicle question area for another vehicle expert to pick up on - I'm sure someone on here can tell you what you need from their own past experience.
Sorry if it's disappointed you, but I'd rather defer to someone else than tell you something that may not be correct.
