I plan on replacing all tie rods, gearbox, pump, but if i can go in with a littler better/heavier parts i don't mind spending the little extra.

Thanks,

yes it will still work. no you dont need to ream or flip it. the ream/flip and the bigger tierods are seperate mods that i combined into 1 writeup because i did them at the same time.

I am buying a reamer this week to do the flip. If anyone needs to borrow it in the future let me know. https://www.facebook.com/groups/DBOR4x4/

Are there too many mixed parts, or would the steering system from an f250 or f350 donor work? Im doing the tie rod flip right now and there's a pretty clean 90 f350 supercab at the Junkyard..thought I might upgrade.

IIRC, the short driver side tie rod is the same as stock for bronco and f250. the longer driver side is indeed stronger however. im not sure about f350 with the solid axles

It's not an f350...it's an f250..my mistake. I think I'll get the entire setup..looks practically brand new, and it's only $27. Thanks for the write-up.

jsut because its something i should have done i added a small application chart on the second post of what vehicles were offered each part. they do not display what GVW came with them however. clicking on each link will display MOOGs page for each part with a more complete application chart. but that would take forever getting each of those parts from the correct vehicle. good luck

Okay, figure I would post my question here (there are 2 other threads that I read up on) regarding the TRE flip.

I have a 4-inch Rancho lift with the drop pitman arm and the old school straight extended radius arms.

I intend to the the TRE flip and there were 3 different sleeves I just saw. The one is from Bronco Graveyard (JBG), the other is the Ruff Stuff specialties (but I think it is for GM, unless someone can confirm the GM and Ford tie rod are same angle?) and the last one was from Poly Performance and I don't think they make the one for a Ford I think I only saw it for a Jeep.

I have no problem buying my own reamer, but I wouldn't mind the other sleeves instead where I don't have to worry about angles just punch a hole and hammer a sleeve until it bottoms on the shoulder. Are the other two sleeves even an option or is the one from JBG really the only one left available and proven?

1996 Bronco XL, 5.8L w/ K&N filter, shorty headers, larger exhaust, E4OD, 3.55 gears, 8.8 (Ford's wannabe GM rear axle), Dana 44, 31x10.5R15....so mostly stock.
