I have a 95 bronco with a 2.5" lift . the alingment shop says I need drop brackets to properly aling it. My question is; Do I attempt to install the brackets myself or should I pay them to do the install? I already purchased the brackets from Tuff Country along with new urathane bushings. If I do the install myself whats the easiest way, and what special tools do I need if any? The Shop says they have done them before and it takes them about 3 hours( $65/hr x 3 = $195 ). Is it worth the money for the shop to do it, incase there are any problems. Any and all help would be great.

If the alignment is included in that price I would say it may be worth it . But if not it's not that hard to install them , no special tools just a little muscle .

I was just under the truck . Whats the easiest way to remove the rivots on the drivers side bracket? Grind them off?

the best way to get the rivets off is to grind the heads off, drill a couple small holes through the rivets and then knock them out with a air chisel.

at least thats how i did it. :shrug

I don't think he was showing off I bet he's just to weak to hit a punch hard enough to make the rivets come out..

Oh I did try the air chisel to knock mine out. But I don't tihnk my little compressor puts out enough PSI. Thats the last time I let me old man by the compressor!!!:(

well, when you have a hernia and a thrown out back, yes i am too weak. :brownbag

i also had a compressor sitting 10 feet away from me and a $10 air chisel to use. so why not. and there wasn't a lot of room to swing a hammer since i didn't move the beams out from under the truck. if you can move the beams out from under the truck, it gives a lot more room to work.

If someone will do it for $200, it may be worth it. I did mine and it's not too bad, but $200 would temp me to have someone else bust their ass. Talk them into doing it for $150 and you'll be happy.
