Are those 7100? Unless you need extra lift I would run them without the coil. The front coilover would need a new top mount most likely.

tchajagos is right about the front radius arm shock bracket. The stock shock has about 4" of travel and the TTB has a 1.5:1 ratio. So 4" = 6" of flex stock. We can get up to 16" of flex with long radius arms , longer & weaker coils and 11" travel shocks. Most guys are content with 12" travel.

The bronco is looking good

Theyre 8125s, I've got Dave over at Threat building me a coilover tower for it, I don't quite understand what youre saying about not running a top coil, but I will be running 400 upper/500 lower as far as spring rates go, shouldn't raise the truck up anymore than it currently sits. They came off a truck set up the same way my front end is, so they should work really well.

Nice, the pic looked more like helper springs lol. What coils are you running now that you are going to replace?

Finally got tired of not having music so I went and did this. Bluetooth receiver since nobody has CDs anymore. (mp3's or vinyls for me)



My battery terminals were jacked too so I copied Taylor (NuBreed) and bought some of these sweet kicker terminals. Goal was to get this thing ready to roll for desert season, the master plan is to tear this thing down when season ends and clean up the wiring, etc.

I plan on running the lower coils that came with them and then buying the upper coils to go with them from Hyperco

So long story short, I kept having intermittent stalling issues when it was hot outside or on long trips. Checked everything I could think of and started shotgunning parts. First thing to replace was the distributor if I was gonna guess, sure enough, pulled it, and could barely turn it by hand, looked in the block where the rod that turns the distributor was and found it was bent pretty bad. tried pulling it a bunch of different ways, couldnt get it and the motor was coming out.

below will be the current progress pictures of the last couple months when ive actually been home to work on it.

THIS is the moment where the project turned into "i might as well do ______ while im here" and things started snowballing.

Made my HVAC block off plates out of actual scrap I had laying around from other jobs ive done for customers lately. May reinstall factory stuff later if I find clean enough stuff at a junkyard to put back in. Everything so far is easily converted back to stock.




Added an aftermarket trans cooler with a fan to replace the small stock one.

Got sick of the crappy stock exhaust, decided I was gonna take replace everything while I was at it. Scored Bassani headers for a steal so I went ahead and ordered the Y-Pipe, capped it off with a Black Widow Venom 250 Muffler

Toyed around with doing a 92-96 front end swap but the bricknose has grown on me. Going to do clear corner lights to replace the ambers and eventually get it painted hopefully within the next year or so.

My original steering column was non tilt and had a bunch of slop in it, plus broken turn signal and hazard indicator, so I was stoked to score this tilt column that was in pretty good shape.
