Ford Ranger Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also understood as Ride height) determines the length from the minimum edge of the vehicle’s underbody and the spot of the tires’ contact with the level road. However, the manufacturer of the model might adopt little tweaks to the fixed measure to declare sweet result hinting the valid stretch from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the ground is briefer than stated in the official manual.

It is no surprise cause practical people want an increased ground clearance to eradicate dilemma when parking near the curbs or getting through the rocky area. The definite ride height of the model ranges from 195 to 229 mm depending on the year of production and trim. Don’t forget that a well- laden auto will beyond doubt give up about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Luckily, the model ground clearance can be raised via spacers for shock absorbers to help the auto rest higher off the ground. While making a taller model, you surrender a small chunk of the former stability and flexibility driving fast. By contrast model ground clearance can be diminished for the sake of upgraded handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Ford Ranger you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
