Ultimate TTB coil adapters.
I made a set of coil adapters to fit TTB springs on solid axle a few months ago and a few guys liked the way they looked. They wern't bad but they lifted the Bronco a little too high. I also thought I could make them a little better. Here's a look at the original ones.

This is where they go. Between the radius arm and coil.

A friend with a mill and lathe made these up for me. The new ones eliminate the two part adapter and should get the Bronco back to about 6" of lift when project SAS2 is completed.

that's to run ttb coils on a solid axle? How are they for springs mounting without bow?

90Beater 09-08-2006 10:22 PM

The TTB springs seat differently than the solid springs. They can pivot so they don't have that problem. My old ones bowed differently because the axle ended up being pushed 1" forward of the top coil buckets. I had the two bolts moved forward on these mounts moving the axle back. there should be no bow now.

I realize they seat different that's why I run the 79 Coils and I have no bow running all stock parts and no shims

very nice. tools rule

Those are the cats ass.

mattabis 09-11-2006 03:19 PM

wow those are damn nice
i was wondering how well it worked without the bow in the first picture because this is the same route i took and i had to set mine back an inch or so i think it was an inch and a half from center. then i saw the second ones man those are cadillac!

crackhead 09-16-2006 03:25 AM

Are those built on the same measurements you sent me?? Ive really got ot get some of those built... Mine work ok, but I just dont like the way they look.. Those are tits..

90Beater 09-16-2006 02:16 PM

the only difference is I ended up using 5" stock to give a little more room for the bottom bolt holes.

bronconatic 01-31-2007 09:04 PM

how much did thoughs coil adapters add to your lift?? cuz i want to use my 4in ttb coils on mine

90Beater 02-01-2007 01:58 AM

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.

TravisITGuy 02-01-2007 10:55 AM

so would these work with the cage arms ?

90Beater 02-01-2007 11:26 AM

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".

I just have to say, VERY NICE!

bronconatic 02-01-2007 09:27 PM

how mcuh would you charge for a pair

90Beater 02-02-2007 01:40 AM

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.

danielzink 03-07-2007 07:09 PM

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 03-07-2007 07:19 PM

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

MileHighTurbo 03-07-2007 07:35 PM

Nice!! now how much did they charge and can they make more???

fishinnutt 03-07-2007 07:44 PM

Those adapters sure are nice.

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.


MileHighTurbo 03-08-2007 12:01 AM

Can you e-me the shop name and #

SAS Coil Buckets
Using a 6 inch TTB lift coil with your adapter does it give you any more lift in the front over the TTB front end.:popc1:

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).

Why use the TTB upper buckets?

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 know this is old, but is this shop still available to make these? I have been turned down by 2 here and NEED these to complete before winter sets in...

Finally made one of these at my buddies shop. I'll see how it fits this weekend and make the second.

TravisITGuy 03-07-2019 12:27 PM

thats Purdy.. keep us posted

crackhead 04-18-2019 06:42 PM

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