I've been trying to figure this out a couple of years now. My Bronco looks to high in the rear. I measured the distance from the rear axle to the rubber stop and it is 6.24 inches. I know the axle is not stock, not sure about the springs. Otherwise it is stock with 31 x 10.50's. It is a daily driver not much off roading.
Check out my picture & tell me what you think. :banghead

Cool picture. :)

Mine is pretty much stock and it measures 5" and it looks nice and square with
the world.

I've got two-steps-stiffer Ford springs on the front but that didn't raise it much.
They might have raised the front "ride height" (as Ford calls it) by about 1/4"?

Ride height:

(that's my '75 F150 I special ordered when I was 21:)

ps "lift kits" phooey. My ride height is 232+1/4". Beat that. ;)

It looks like mine is 2-3 inches to high in the rear. The only thing I can come up with is the springs. I have measured several Broncos and mine sits higher than all of them.

That pack of leaf springs don't look like my Bronco's.
Looks like my '90 F250 (>8500#) parts truck spring.
The '91 F150 has narrower springs not 3" like the '91
Bronco and '90 F250 have... so those wouldn't have
been an easy swap?

Thanks Alvin. I will be looking for some more springs in the local jy. Do you know if the springs from a f150 are the same as bronco's

for the 80-96 f150s
2.5" wide for 2wd trucks and
3.0" wide for 4wd

pretty sure lengths are all the same for f150-350
