It is hard to explain without visual aids (pictures). Also, there is more to it than just replacing, they also have to be adjusted. I recommend you get a Haynes Repair Manual for Ford Ranger Pickups 1993 - 2005. You will find all info and pictures there with step by step instructions. They cost about $14.00 but are well worth it. Or, you could check at your local library to see if there is one available there. Good luck.
