alright guys, my 90 bronco has a cracked axle pivot drop bracket, and upon further inspection, i have a nearly busted through leaf spring shackle, also something wrong with where my front swap bar mounts to my pas. side strut. and shot bushings here and there. also the PO had this chassis double/triple coated in some sort of chassis goop. looks like hell. rather then replacing the broken and re-doing the rest if not all the bushings the whole way around and lifting off the body to sand blast the chassis, would i be better off grabbing another chassis from a standard height bronco? or is there going to be alignment issues with body to chassis mating?

alright, ty for that info. i really don't want to deal with adjusting/fab'ing issues, ill stick within my yr range then. now for the next question. how heavy is the body after i remove front clip/doors/seats/carpet/topper? want to know because i wonder if 2x4 and or 4x4 constructed to keep the body suspended while i replace the chassis?

80-91 and for 87-91 bumper to work on a 80-86 frame you need to drill 4 holes in the frame horns to mount the bracket, rest is the same, and 92-96 will work minus bumper(have to fab up bumper mounts), and have the accordian frame horns,

so 80-96 frame will work minus front bumper,

for lifting the body

actually i was thinking if i do manage this chassis swap, ill end up leaving it stock height. i have some serious plans for this rig. if only i can get other projects panned out. this will def turn out as a 1 of a kind, (i have yet to find a google image of my vision) FSB
