Use the 3.5" rockcrawler springs from wild horses ( about $135.00) then run 2.5" blocks in the rear and it will run level. Broncos are low in the front to start with. this set up works very well to start with and is not to much money. one thing that also needs to be done is run shock hoops front and back due to broncos will out flex the shock lenth from the factory!

When you lift...don't forget the bracket to lower the trackbar and new "C" bushings for the front end to correct the caster angle. I strongly suggest an adjustable drag-link or some type of modified steering arms. Such as moving the tie rod on top of the knuckles. This will help with the bump steer and make for a better ride.
