crackhead The radius arm mount holes are in the wrong spot. I'll weld it up and re mill it. Pics when I get done.

They're there........

Why cut out the TTB Upper buckets, take the chance of mounting the earlier bucket incorrectly, buy more shocks (already have 4) - when everything is there ?

Now........this is just me.....I live in Michigan - there are no hardcore places to wheel around here. I'm doing this for myself - general fooling around in the woods and the opportunity later to go up tire size and not have to fart around with the TTB when a live axle is more forgiving.

I believe that the general concensus is that a 6" coil with these adapters and the early RA's will net approx. 8" of total lift.
I'm going to start out with my old 4" springs and see how it sits (with the 6" lift on the rear).

It's funny......I told the guy as I was walking out the door......."you may be making more of these".........He just smiled and said "no problem"....

I paid 150 bucks for the pair. I don't know if that's expensive or if it's cheap.....I just know that I didn't have the facilities to make them - so it was worth it for me.

90Beater very nice. I like the way they machined it so the bolt seats in but cant turn.

Got Mine !

First off - I want to thank 90beater for posting the plans for these adpaters ! major props to him !

Anyhow - I took the plans posted earlier in this thread to a friend - who then referred me to a machine shop. I handed the guy my RA's, a spring and these plans here's what he fabbed up for me:

I'm definitely jazzed....
The plan is to use the TTB upper coil buckets with the Rough Country 4" springs (hoping to net 6" of total front lift). Stock (79) bronco drag link & trac bar, 7* c bushings, Existing drop pitman arm.
And fabricate a trac bar mount.

90Beater Actually I had them made. You can take the above pic to a machine shop and have them made. I don't know the cost it was a trade deal.

bronconatic how mcuh would you charge for a pair
02-01-2007 06:47 PM
4x4_Racer I just have to say, VERY NICE!
02-01-2007 11:26 AM
90Beater As far as I know they would. I haven't seen the cage arms myself but as long as the two threaded holes on the C caps are the same it should be no different than stock.

One thing I posted in my SAS thread that isn't here is the top part should be narrower than in the dimentions I made. They were a litle too thick and I had to grind them down to fit the bottom of the coil. Where I had the top at 2 1/2" it should be 1 3/4".

02-01-2007 10:55 AM
TravisITGuy so would these work with the cage arms ?
02-01-2007 01:58 AM
90Beater The first set added about 2 1/2" to the lift which was a little to high for my liking. The new set should only be about 3/4". If you wanted more lift you could just have it made with a thicker base. I wouldn't want to go too high though. I would be afraid of snapping the bolts that hold it to the radius arms.
