I have been searching craigslist, Found this

http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/rds/pts/1818224849.html

I just put a 6" lift in my bronco, Hasn't even hit the road yet. How much of this lift would still be useable?

I know there will be fabricating, Just not sure how much. Swapping into a 1978 bronco too.

EDIT:

Just found these as well

Dana 60 front for 500 bucks, Then I just grab a rear from something else for 150 or so. Once again how much different is this front axle?

The first one is a Dana 60 with Coil springs..

The 2nd one is a Dana 60 with leaf springs..

Both seem to have the matching rear axle to go with it.

Yeah, I would rather coil's because I have brand new coils, but I have heard mounting point is wider on these axles, So if I chopped everything down on the front axle till it was clean and welded the perches on, Would my radius arms bolt up? Or is the axle housing bigger?

Forget my last post, Housing is to big, But since I cant weld big stuff like suspension. The guy I bought my 38's off of can, And is willing to swap in 1 tons to my truck, Like the 07 350 axles, Fab his own radius arms on it, Do all the shit I cant do, All he wants in return is my half ton axles, Worth about 3-400 for the set out here. So my 38's and rims would be for sale, Now for the 1 tons in that year rims are metric or stud spacing or something, Anyway to change that so I can bolt on a set of rims from any old 1 ton ford dodge or chevy??

Wheel spacers/adapters are really the only option to go to the old 8 lug pattern. The 8x170 is becoming more popular though as the lug pattern has been out for a few years now. Also you can buy recentered H1 wheels in the 8x170 pattern. I opted to buy the 16" stock steel superduty wheels and weld on my own beadlocks to run my 11-16 XML's.
