I only boxed it because the 80-86 frame is a C in the front, and I wouldn't have anything to bolt the inside of the bracket onto.

9 coming out



9 out



Nothing.



Sterling and F350 pack in



Done



Front



Rear



29 inches at the bottom of the rocker



Another shot.

Yes looks good, do know what your caster came out at when all done? I put an 89 60 under my 78 and lots of people told me I should have set the caster a lot higher then I did but it drives great. I believe mine is about 1.8 or 2

Pinion angle is all jacked up



Got my coil harness tho



Slide one of the M37s 38's under it.



Random pictures





Brake line bracket before getting cleaned up



For anyone wondering, that doesn't work. Buy the F350 flex lines.

What went wrong here?

I bought the JBG braided stainless Bronco lines, ground off the "locating edges" and bent the hard part of the line a bit and it works like a charm





I also need to mount my lines on the bottom of the frame

Got my brake lines....



EDIT: I couldn't get a good seal around the caliper. I guess you got lucky, or the Ford gods just like watching me spend money

I've been lurking around watching your progress since I have an 85 with the same drivetrain and plans to swap in an axle. It's good to see that you have it done and the rig looks awesome! Hope you get your start issues cleared up without too much trouble.
