Well I finally made some legitimate progress on the broncs today! First time in over three years she has stood on her own 4 wheels! The lift is so high, those deavers are no joke!!! She sits at 46" to the center of the wheel well!!!! I still have a lot of work to finish up but I have three days until I go back to work on Monday.
Drivers side tower
james duff tracbar mount, still need two more bolts in the crossmember, and may add a support bar to the crossmember at later date.
trac-bar issues, really didn't want to cut my cross member but tomorrows the day
made a huge mistake on the drivers side radius arm mount, the frame bends a little here and I didn't get the mount flush enough. the daylight is driving me nuts, I can't re-drill unless I move the whole bracket at least 3/4", not sure what im going to do, maybe try and shove a steel wedge in there, or I might die grind the side holes up a little and torque down the bottom one first to flush it up with the bottom of the frame.
pass side radius arm mount, looks ok
few pictures of the coils, I think they came out real nice, my wheelbases are around 104 1/8", the pass side is short by 1/8", I think the adjustments on the hiems can take care of that thou. the coils only compressed from 25" to about 23" and I have the winch/bump setup, so needless to say I was way off when estimating my lift height.
front view, like those perfect angles first try huh guys!!! custom drag link angles hahahah
it was nice to get her rolling and just look over everything, pulled her out in the alley and washed her down now I got her staged to use the lift for the rest of the work I have to do this weekend.
shes stink bugged for sure! im thinking I might wait to re-gear the rear end (I put 4.56 in the new d44 up front) and look for a ford 9" to put money into then swap that in the rear with a shackle flip to level it out, but im just thinking ahead for now. I might break down and buy a tie-rod drag-link setup this week. Also has anyone ever used a stock driveshaft with a lift this size? When I had the truck on the lift, the front axle was at full drop and my stock shaft can reach the u-joint without problem it seems. J/W cause I was pretty confident I was going to have to buy a longer one but I may be able to get away with this one.
