I just called Napa to see if they had f350 1 ton coils.he asked what i was gonna put them on. so i told him a bronco then he 's telling me about the spring rate!!!???
95 bko stock spring rate 1428 lbs (brand new $86 bucks a pair)
f350 2wd 1 ton spring rate 1442 lbs and are only 1 inch longer than stock bronco coils
f250 hd deisel 2wd 1993 springs are 2 inches shorter??? this is what he told me.
Not so sure about the junkyard coils now since they are off a 86 250 hd 2wd

don't knock it 'til you try it.

That is how I did my lift 1-ton coils. I put RS5000s under the front, too...Ride is more smooth or at least just as smooth as it was stock.

As for flex - the only offroad that my '95 sees anyway is when I want to get to a fishin' hole or in the mud...not a lot of flex needed anyway.

I highly recommened the 1-ton coils. But yes, do count on having to have the camber adjusted. Just remember to give it a few weeks to let the coils "settle out."

dude i can tell by looking at your pictures that your alignment is shitty with the 1 ton coils. stiffer ride, less flex, yadda yadda yadda. just get a real lift kit, you'll be much better off in the long run.

Dude...
That picture is from right in the MIDDLE of the coil swap. So yeah, my alignment is off. But it's better now. I let the coils settle out; then had the alignment redone. If I had a digital camera I would post another picture.

If you looked my picture THAT close, you would also have nocited that the passanger side is jacked up and the wheel is off. Go figure.
