How does the alignment bushing work?


How do you adjust it?
Start at post # 409 and you will see how they work and how to adjust them. :thumbup

It's that time of year again., so I put the stockers on again to get a sticker...



Changed the oil, pulled the stock tires and wheels off, then put the 37's on and put the plow on for winter...

You used to be able to. Now, it's all on video that connects to the RMV. All have a 5 camera system in their inspection bays. The five cameras include 1 video wall mounted, 2 still wall mounted, 1 workstation mounted and 1 handheld device. By rights, you are allowed 2" of difference from factory height.

I do not have much to add other then I think its cool you use that to plow with. Its super nice and I am not sure I could do it myself, but at sametime if you built it to do that why not.
I also find it somewhat funny that your plow side markers are still only maybe even with the hood. on most trucks they would be way higher.

Well, one of my air bags sprung a leak so i need to replace it so my Bronco doesn't run around knock-kneed with the plow on it. I ended up ordering the #80523's because of the extreme lift. Once I add a spacer to the bottom, it will fill up the 15+" of space that I have in the compressed condition.
Here are the specs of the Airlift bags that will fit our rigs if anyone needs it:

#80590 80-96 STOCK BRONCO 4” X 8”
#80523 65-76 F100 & 77-79 F150 4” X 13”
#80531 70-2018 F250,350 & 450 4” X 11”

Man; I'm about to swap in HMMWV tires (37X12.5s) and thinking they're YUGE!

Then seeing your rig swapped out from 44" down to 37".....:ROFLMAO::D

It's just because I have too much lift in my truck for 37"s.
Here's my '93 with the same fender flares, tires and wheels, just less lift and they look fine:



If you look at the rear tire, it's above the top of the two-tone stripe on the '93. On the the '96, the top of the rear tire is just about even with the bottom edge of the quarter.That's about a 4"-5" difference in height.
It's all relative to the amount of lift, Hell, at one time I thought my 35's looked big:



No matter what, if I went this route for the winter, I was definitely going to break $hit:

What's the lift on this Trump-mobile (orange; get it?!?)?

Those tires and lift looks so appropriate, it actually looks like 33"s or 35"s!

6", with 1 1/4" cut out of the front coil spring towers to level it.

It's all relaitive to the amount of lift, the right amount of lift keeps everything proportionate. Here is the same "Trump Mobile" with the same wheels, only with 35" BFG's and 4" of lift and air bags.

Good tire for the money; ride well, easy to balance and decent traction. It's also a quiet tire.

6", eh?

Maybe I should aim for that amount of lift as well, with the HMMWV tires.

Sounds about right o me, but then again, I do tend to be a little extreme.

Well, we've gotten a few snow storms already and with the bad airbag, she tends to be a little pigeon toe'd with the plow up. (I mean the tires really scream on dry pavement!) So, I decided to bring her to the shop and swap the old bags out for the new ones. My plan was to pull the plow off here at the house and drive it to the shop without so I wouldn't wreck what's left of my tires, but it was pouring rain this am so I opted to drive it there with the plow on. It actually worked out well with all the rain and the tires didn't scuff. I pulled the plow at the shop, removed the front tires and springs and installed the 13" bags. It went pretty well and the results were perfect; just in time for more snow Tuesday. :(
Anyways, it doesn't squat with the plow up, which is what I needed to keep the wheels straight.
