Ok guys, I have a backwards problem with a lift. I bought a Bronco and most of the mods and additions were done several owners back, so I am having to dig through and try to figure out what has been done.

I am pretty sure that the truck has some kind of suspension lift based on the pretty red coils and the Rancho shocks, plus a good deal of clearance for the 32 in tires on it now.

Is there any quick way to identify just how much of a lift it has on it now? I don't see any kind of identification on the parts, but I could be looking in the wrong place.

Thanks for any and all ideas.

Jeff

Spring measurements for the lift

Andy351 said:
thats not a very accurate way to determine front lift:goodfinge my 4" used 2.5" blocks and it sat level. (the blocks were actually tapered from 2.25-2.5" to help the pinion angle) and most lifts don't lift the rear as much as the front.

measure the coil spring at ride height and compare it to mine. i have a 4" lift.


Ok. I measured the coils from top of the coil to bottom is about 14.25 inches. The rear springs seem to have an extra thick leaf in the middle and all the leaves together at the center measure just under 2.5 inches. There is a block at the bottom of the leaves that measures .75 inches at the front, and 1.25 inches at the back.

I have no idea how to attach images here, so I put photos of the front and rear springs on my superford profile at - http://www.superford.org/members/profile.php?id=8346


I am guessing this means about a 2 inch lift perhaps?

Thanks,

Jeff
