Hey guys,

So I ended up buying duff coil towers because my stock TTB towers looked like they weren't slightly bent ( probably from jumping).
I have 25" deaver super flex coils. Is it possible to end up with 6-7 inches of lift in the front ? My rear is about 6.5" over stock.
I noticed the duff coil towers were only 8 inches in length while the 78/79 ford oem ones were closer to 10" and the JBG ones they no longer sell are 11"

Shadowfax said he ended up with 6 inch lift but his tower is 3 inches longer, can I move my duff towers up high enough to bring the lift down?

Thoughts?

I'm guessing you have the deavers CSH58. I used these with the 78/79 buckets and netted about a 9" lift off them. You may be able to move them up or get the CSH57 coils to get the 6-7" of lift. The only thing I could see being the problem the mounting the drivers side bucket. The chassis has weird pockets for the steering box making it difficult to attach the forward hardware to the bucket. I liked the OEMs b/c I was only able to put three bolts on the side and then you also able to put two on the bottom lip.

Yeah there the CSH58, damn maybe I should have gotten the 57's. I'd be ok with 7" of lift but anything more than that is to much for my goals.

You should have just stuck with your stock towers and run our coils. Over and done and much cheaper. But since your at where your at, you have to figure out if you can mount your towers high enough on the frame to yield 6-7" of overall "lift". Those 58 coils are beasts and way to long for 80-96 Broncos going for 6" of lift. Some basic math says at 25" free length, 300lb/in rate and a guess at 1200lb corner weight, that coil is going to compress to roughly 21". That is 9" longer than the stock coil. To yield an overall difference of 6-7" more than stock you will have to have your coil tower 2-3" higher than stock. 3" is probably not going to be easily achievable. You can probably get them 2" above stock.
Your only other option is to get the 57 springs or our springs. Then you can mount the tower in ROUGHLY the stock location. I suppose you could start over go back to stock towers to avoid all this confusion.
