Does anybody know anybody that makes any 8" Coil springs to go on my F-150 with a SAS '79 Dana 44 front end? I'm using the '79 coil brackets and have 6" coils right now but could use 2 more inches.
My coil buckets are already dropped, i just cut the bottom of them off where they hung below the frame and welded the top to my shock hoop.roach57 said:if you only need 2 inches drop your upper spring perch down. Seen a few guys do it just weld whatever size square tubing u need to the bottom of the frame then lower it down and mount it as u please, very cheap fix.
Your right about Superlift coils being 9", I may have to go with them if I can't find anybody that makes 8" coils.The Von said:Superlift used to make 8" coils for the 78-79's. Think they only come in 6" and 9" now though. Ive heard the superflex coils from Broncograveyard are more like 7-8" coils than 6" ers so you might want to check that avenue out.
yeah thanks but would really like to be able to buy some 8" coils without having to change anything, may just have to go with some 9"sroach57 said:skyjacker carries some 8" for 83 - 90 Bronco II and a 83 - 97 Ranger and quite a few jeeps if you wanted to find some different mounts, otherwise if you are a decent fabricator you can raise up your lower coil buckets with some tubing, :shrug trying to throw out some ideas for ya
I can't really unlower my coil mounts cause they are welded to my shock hoop and even if i cut them off I wouldn't be able to raise my buckets and I can't move the shock hoop up higher than it already is.tbonemcniel said:get 9" and "unlower" ur coil mounts
