transfer case doesn't need to be extended. sometimes it won't work, so you can trim the floor opening. i extended mine, though because i liked where it sat stock. and the brake lines will all be fine with a body lift

Cool. But I was thinking along the lines of factory wheels. Perhaps steelies to keep cost down. :brownbag
Late response but I don't know of any 5 on 5.5 16 factory wheels. I think 16" wheels got popular after the fsb was discontinued and by that time I think the wheels were metric.

"good" no, not like you are used to. But these things wheel pretty well, even without a ton of front articluation. Just lock the rear, and youll be amazed at the stuff it can do in comparison to the smaller stuff(shorter wheel bases) you are used to.
The rear does have a detroit in it...Oh well, not that much articulation, I guess that's a good enough reason for a SAS and coilovers! :chili:

I read that BDS makes an adjustable kit from 4" to 6" with brackets with 2 pivot holes for 4 or 6. My question...if I were to buy a kit that is 4" with new leaf springs, would I have to buy new leaf springs if I were to upgrade to 6" later? All that was stated that needed to be bought new would be coil springs and shocks. Sorry if this is dumb

Rough Country and Superlift are the same way. you dont have to...but the rear would be lower then the front, could get away with AALs or a small 2" block.

aight i came in on this topic a little late, and i didnt have enough time to read every post to see if somebody allready asked my question, or answered it, so here goes: what ure saying is that all ive gotta do is go to a junkyard and find an f250 or f350 and bolt their (is it front or rear) shackles into where my rear shackles are, and that would give my 3-5 in of lift? what year f250/f350 would i need to look for (i have a 96 fsb)?

does anyone have pics of a 90 bronco with about a 3" body lift on 35's. Looking to do a 3" body lift and wanting to put 35's on. Wondering how it would look.


I have a 1990 Eddie-Bauer, and had a Rancho 4"" kit/system installed 3 years ago. I'm running 33x12.50.15's on the original rims. Even with a 4" suspension lift U'd have a hard time going larger than that. Ur turning radius would just be terrible. I hit lock-2-lock now, but it's acceptable. I can manage a U-turn without backing up !

The biggest problem I have with Rancho is the front quad-shocks hit the end-links of the sway bar, and rub holes in the shocks ! I'm trying to get an resonable answer from Rancho on this now.

Good-Luck....

I read through this thread & did a search but did not find the answer I am looking for. So here it goes:
When you get a 4" or 6" lift, is the rear of the Bronco lifted the same amount? When I look at a lift kit, they seem to have 4" front/2" rear or 4" front/3" rear. I realize that "which one looks right" is subjective, so can you tell me which would make it ride level?

6" should be enugh on an 84 with no triming.
I ran 35"s with just a 3" body lift on my 86.

By the way, you should start a thread in the intraductions forum.

i want to put some race like suspension on my bronco instead of a lift, can anyone help me?
Autofab makes and sells a long travel suspension setup, as do a few other So Cal shops. Also, do a search at www.race-dezert.com. I remember reading a few posts about tricked out Broncos with desert racing influenced suspensions.
