Grrrr.....I am looking all over for the suspension lift that suits me best and i liked some on jeffsbroncograveyard but it was like $1850 so then i was looking in my petersons 4wheel and i came across a skyjacker lift i like as well as a few other brands but they dont have 78-79 bronco lifts posted,would a lift for a 79 f-150 work for my bronco? leafs,coils,the works! i need to know if it will work or if it wont, thanks

ps. anyone reccomend a lift kit 4"-8" that comes with rear leafs and cost under $600 for a 79?:shrug

The lift will be the same for the F-150 and the Bronco, but the rear shocks are different.

nameless, do you have blocks in the rear? I dont want blocks and i went to the skyjacker site and all the lifts for the bronco are 6"&9"coils and wimpy leafs and blocks for the rear and it dosent look like yours lift is wimpy...

Do a shackle flip and use the blocks for paper weights at the office. If you need a little extra add some leaves to the rear pack. Or throw a winch on the front and the front springs will sag down to the height of the rear.


Off topic: Are you done rebuilding your 400? I'd like to know your costs and what you did? I'm trying to decide on a rebuild or a long block. I found a place that sells a stock long block 400M for $1085.00 with a 7 year / 70K warranty. I know it's stock but after what it cost me to rebuild and upgrade my 5.0 cheap is good.

I got my rebuild kit from northern auto parts in Sioux City Iowa, the master rebuild kit from my 400m was $263.99 for the kit that included everything youll need www.northernautoparts.com order a catolog there really good with service. I also have a edelbrock 4brl carb and edelbrock performer intake,headers and a edelbrock cam. after buying all that and replaceing alot of stuff like water pump and alternator it was like $1120? or something but i had my mom take out a loan so im paying it back now and i havent started rebuilding the motor yet i gotta get some things done like get it bored and cleaned and i need my heads back from my friends shop.

just remember you get what you pay for, most of the time. cheap lifts are cheap for a reason, shocks run 30 bucks and up apiece
