I would think those springs would make it too squirrely for daily usage.familybeast said:The trickest cheap set-up for the rear could be using the shakle flip plus those 62" chevy leaf spring the toy guy have been using.
well i definately have the heavy duty D44 front on the f250Lonestar_Bronco said:I would think those springs would make it too squirrely for daily usage.
I'm happy with my skyjacker 6" coils. My lift consists of the said coils, trac bar drop bracket, drop pitman arm, stock length radius arms, and 7 deg bushings in the front. The nice thing about no drop brackets is it doesn't hurt your ground clearence anywhere.
For the rear, I built some brackets to flip the shackle, gusseted the shackle, re-drilled the axle perchs and top plates to move the axle back 2" on the springs. I've also got some wierd helper leaves that were on the truck when I got it. The limit compression, but so far this hasn't been a problem. They do, however, give me a little more control on the road. I'm really impressed how well this Bronco handles for 35" tires and no - AS bars.
As far as swapping the drivetrain out of your F250, You wouldn't be changing much. All you really need to change is the rear axles (Dana 60 for 9") and the front knuckles, hubs, spindles, etc. Your F250 most likely has a heavy duty D44 front. While this does have beefier hubs and such, the axle housing doesn't have the mounts for the three link coil suspension found on Broncos. There is a possibility that you have a Dana 60 front. If so, your two easist bets would be, either go leaf spring in the front, or weld the required mounts on the Dana 60.
