If you’re handy with tools, have mechanic experience, and want to save some coin, the CV builders kit is the way to go! Our extended CV axle shaft builders kit includes a pair of +3″ extended front axle half-shafts, made from 4340 chromoly steel. These axle shafts are required when installing the long travel system on a 4WD Ford Ranger, as the factory CV axles will no longer be long enough for the 3″ wider upper and lower control arms. The builders kit is a more economical option for those who want to re-use their original CV joints and outer ends. This requires disassembly of the original CV axle assemblies, and reassembly with the extended shafts. The builders kit also includes OEM-style CV boot clamps, since they cannot be re-used from the OEM CV boots.
