Ifs for me. smooth riding and no alignment issues like the TTB. had 4 TTB trucks. camber issues on all. Although you can get a fair amount of wheel travel out of them.

what do you think is under your ranger??? if it's 2 wheel drive it'll have ford's twin-I-beam suspension. that is IFS. if it's a 4x4 it'll have the TTB, also IFS.

nope, IFS is defined as each wheel being able to move independant from each other. my 08 has IFS and there are no torsion bars.

ok
when I mean ifs, i mean torsion bars
when talking about RBVs (Ranger Based Vehicles {Rangers, B-Series 94+, BroncoIIs, and explorers}) its either IFS, TTB or SAS
no disrespect

none takin Boggin, i just don't wanna confuse any members that have the same questions. IFS to me is any axel that can move independantly from each other, whether it has torsion bars, control arms, macpherson strut or TTB. the old ford 1/2 tons had solid axel up till around 80-81 and the 250-350 still have them. a solid will move both wheels, one will go up and the other will go down. if that makes sense.
