Buy super lifts with radius arms, save for deavers or scour forums for a used pair. Got my deavers for $350 lightly used. Lifted my whole bronco for $1050 and the rear is done while I save to long travel and convert the steering to crossover

Probably too late but that looks like my Rancho lift. The Super Runner steering needs the lift part to go straight down instead of at an angle. My son was able to modify the Super Runner for the Rancho lift on mine but he's a welder by trade. There is no way I could have made it work. Also, if you do the Super Runner make sure you get the Super Lift drop pitman. The Rancho pitman is a slightly different length and will chew up the front tires.

You would have to push the rear axle back to reduce driveline angle. How much lift u got? Front or rear shaft

Yup get a new driveshaft. Shocks will also need to be longer. Depending on your skills and available tools it can be accomplished in a weekend.

You DO NOT need to extend your drive shaft. Only things that will need to be extended besides the normal lift parts will be your brake lines.

Just did the RC 6 inch lift and all I needed extra was th extended break lines. Took me about 8 hours and you definitely need a second set of hands.

Thank you for this thread, WES, and thanks to all who contributed. I just read the whole damn thing and I no longer have one single question about lift systems and tires. Well done.

Wheel/ Tire question WRT 4" BDS lift, with 4.11 and E4OD (see signature line for more detail) and yes I searched.

Current setup: 33x12.5x15 on steel UNIQUE wheels 15x10.

Option 1 setup: 17" Level 8 Trackers rims with 295x70x17R (gives it a 33.3" diameter), tire/wheel weight the same at current setup/ tire.

Option 2 setup: 17" Level 8 Tracker rims with 285x75x17R (gives it a 33.8" diameter), tire/ wheel weight about 10 lbs heavier than current setup/ tire.

the reason for this is the 12.5 BFG width on the pavement is giving outside wear despite every 6K rotations. I had the tires reversed from blackwall to whitewall to even things out. Plus the tire stick out a bit more causing more "bow" in steering linkage.

By running either option 1 or 2, the more narrow tire will pulll the wheels/ tires back closer to stock position and increase MPG, and turn radius.

Am I missing anything with this analysis. Of course if I go with Option 2, I will need to re-calibrate PSOM and make sure the near 34" works find with travel and backspace to the radius arm. Also, it does put a bit more strain on engine and gearing. Option 1 would be nearly no change, minus less rubber on the road.

Thoughts? This change is a look ahead to less maintenance, wear/ tear and hopefully better looks and performance.

Thanks for the input.

I just finished a SAS and I am trying to figure out how much lift I got out of the front before I order rear springs. Does anybody have measurements to the top of the fender wheel arch before and after a lift with 31" tires. I started at 35" and ended up at 39.5" so I know I netted 4.5 up, but I'm not sure if the truck had a leveling kit on it before I bought it or if the rear springs are just sagged.

Hello,

I've been reading around the forums about what tire I should put on my newly lifted(ProComp 6" w/ Extd Rad Arms) 5.0L '96 Bronco(see Below).
Is it true that I need to get re-geared with a 35" tire? Is my 5.0L enough to push the bigger tires?
Does anyone have any personal experience or recommendations on 34" vs 35" w/ a 6" lift?

Edit: this is a weekend warrior/camping truck. Hit easy to medium trails in Colorado. Not a daily driver.

Thank you for reading!

Here are the measurements that I recorded on my '96 with 31x10.5R15 tires at the bottom of the wheel wells.
Front: 35 3/8"
Rear: 36"
Hope this helps out.

So I just bought this 1991 Bronco. It appears to have a leveling kit on it. It has these axle pivot brackets with the two holes like they were discussing earlier in this forum. I am going to purchase a 6 inch lift kit. However was wondering if these brackets would be enough if I were to just buy the extended radius arms, coils, shocks and pit man arm and pieced together the kit I want. I just didn't know if they had a bracket that fit the 2 inch lift and 4 inch lift and then another bracket for the 4 inch lift and the 6 inch lift. Dont know if there is a difference or not.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have been seeing some Broncos with 4 front shock absorbers (two on each front tire), instead of traditional 2, (one on each tire). I wonder is that due to aftermarket modifications, or factory equipped with select Bronco models. What is the benefit of having 4 front shock absorbers in stead of 2? Can a Bronco that was originally equipped with 2 shock in the front, be modified to accept 4?

a lot of these questions should be asked in their own thread in this Noobie section folks.
Would get you the answers you seek much faster.

Yes there are different degree shim blocks to adjust the angle of the Pinion. these can be found at a local Speed shop.
