I used a set of altered shackle hangers from the AIMGroup on my 92
Ranger and was happy with the quality and results. I think they were
about $70 or so. Take note though, after getting my truck to set level
I decided to replace the rear bumper, which is quite heavy, with a role
pan and I gained about an inch in height.

I was told by a Ford Alignment Tech, that this wear *is* because you
front end is in spec! The twin I beam has what is called cross camber
(more on one side than the other) to compensate for the crown in the
road. After lowering my Ranger, I had it aligned without cross camber
for use in autocross, and it now pulls left when you let go of the
wheel.
