I posted this in the Explorer forum, but thought there might be Sport Trac guys like me that like to offroad.

I was checking into Trakmotive and their extended travel CV axles they now offer. They don't list them for front SLA IFS Ford Ranger/Explorer/Sport Trac, but I got word from their sales rep that they are working on it for this year. Coverage would be 00-10 Ranger, which would also fit the 01-05 Sport Trac, and maybe some 95-01 Explorers. Here is their flyer:

03/2020: New Extended CV Axles Designed Specifically for Lifted Vehicles | TrakMotive

Sounds like great news, as I tend to get some binding or clunk when I am on the trail and maxing out the stock CV axle travel.

This is great. Especially considering how they seem to be the only real downfall to a torsion twist.

That'd make sense too, and honestly more practical. Work on rangers, 2nd gen explorers
So a diff drop bracket to go along with a suspension A-arm lift, right? But they come with diff drop brackets.
Can't do it alone can you? Gotta drop the lower A-arm as well or the CV shaft coming out of the dropped diff wont clear. Unless I'm missing something, which is likely.

Depends on how much the diff is dropped, to an extent it'd work. It'd be to reduce the CV axle angle only
