    Have had 4 attempts at different shops to get them to dial in a bit more camber and they all say cannot be done and must buy UCA's..... I might hit up a few 4x4 shops on the weekend and see if they can do it/know a shop that will.
    They should be able to get tge camber into spec at ride height with factory adjustment, the problem is the suspension will have little/no droop travel without UCAs

      Can tunes be done remotely or is it a drive into the shop arrangement?

        Ended up buying some Ironman Forged UCA's through an old work colleague who now works at the Thailand operation.

        Not fitted yet as am looking to fuck off the spacers and fit proper lifted springs and shocks bit am time poor at the moment.

          That's really only a Hilux/200 series thing. Even when you fix that the inner cv (tripod joint) starts binding up.

          Ranger can only go a 20mm (iirc) longer shock before the cv becomes a problem on droop

          Be sure the uca fits a series 3. Series one and 2 have different front suspension.

            I don't have CV's so all is good.

                TBH with my new job, combining the car allowance I get & my nopics who happens to be a chartered accountant works her magic come tax time. This thing will cost me nothing, except the mods I plan on doing; add central locking to the tailgate, (kayhan head unit, splits, amp, sub), tailgate lift strut, intercooler, exhaust etc.
                Yeah the 2.0TT is already here in the LDV Prado wannabe thing.

                      Yeah was thinking of renting a few and get them to stand close to the tailgate and wait for them to get an erection.

                            So update on the Ranger Raptor, which is 1 yr old and 30102km on the odometer and was serviced 2 days ago.

                            It had the recall for the failure of the transmission pump gears which results in loss of drive performed in April which included a PCM/TCM software update and inspection. My car was in the last week of the recall list from production.

                            So today do a bunnings run and as i leave the bunnings car park, the transmission slips goes bang out of gear and has a box full of neutrals. Initial response from Ford Australia was disappointing, as I waited 40 minutes on hold for roadside assistance and in the end live chatted to someone on the ford website who helped me out.

                            Problem with this is that my vehicle is used for work in remote australia and has significant modifications (roll cage, gps tracking, lift kit, sat phone and cell phone boosters, vhf and uhf radio etc.) to be on gas pipeline sites which has put me in a spot as i have to leave in 12 days for a 28 day stint.

                            Right now Ford Australia have given me full use of a ranger xlt hire car for free while they try and sort the problem (and have been very understanding and accommodating) and they believe they can have it repaired within the timeframe. Interesting times ahead.....

                              Surely they can slap another box in it within 12 days.

                                They think that shipping of parts will be the problem at the moment due to some virus thing going on in mexicostraya

                                Its a shame too because otherwise i absolutely love this car and nearly have it setup where its perfect for work/play/camping/touring. Thank fuck it has happened now as i was touch and go on a leaving for a cape york trip a month ago
