Get a leaf spring 44 or dana 60 and a divorced NP 205 and make it a 4x4. If its got the 292 and t98 4 speed your set that is a torque monster with a 6.XX first gear in the trany. My first vehicle was a 64. With stock springs and a SFA it will clear 35's and look sweet. Mine came with a semi float d60 in the back :thumbsup:

not looking to off road it at all so theres no need for the 4x4 with SFA, i'm just wondering how to lift it how it is. Would lifted chevy leaf springs work with bigger u bolts?

you are going to have to experiment, get some measurements and go to a pick and pull.

so measure from shackle to shackle and find lift leafs that measure the same? but thats the basic concept correct? just leaf springs and bigger ubolts?

don't forget longer shocks, longer/ redone steering links(not sure what that system looks like form memory)

don't forget to take the center pin location with you to the junk yard.

I made drop brackets on my 72 to clear 33's but I didn't get the geometry quite right, and I never got it aligned. It rode and drove like shit, but it definitely could have been done better. I used some 1/4" wall rectangular tube that fit in the original bracket, and used angle iron to brace it back to the crossmember. I don't know what can be done about the tie rod/ drag links though. prolly have to build your own. I lifted mine 3" and reused the stock shocks even though they were shot.

Missing the point there Ray Charles....

There won't be a thread like that because that is not what this site is for. Find a classic Ford site or a Ford specialty site, not an OFF ROAD, ROCK CRAWLING site....

exacty there wont be, because classic ford sites wont have any idea what a lift is, this site however does and everything is lifted so if you just want to be etuff and just try to look cool go start your own thread and argue with yourself i'm just looking for lift options for my truck thanks

First of all, Twin I beams have coils. Which do you have? Twin I- Beam or straight axle with leaves?

Calling the front axle I beam may cause confusion with folks who only know twin I beam. It's really a straight axle and can be lifted by simply rearcing your leafs. Depending on the lift you want, you may need a drop pitman arm to keep the steering geometry good.

Lot's of two wheel drives in the desert racing forum and if that's okay, why get all butthurt over this guys simple question??

Fixed for accuracy

I was going to be a dick to you but decided to try and be helpful. I figured you were new here and didn't know how things go. So don't start shit here with some of the senior members because you WILL be forced to chug bleach.

Since it is an antique just leave it the way it is! Every one respects an unaltered vintage truck.

EDIT: Bronc- The 2wd pre runner types are cool, they go fast through the desert, they are custom engineered to handle some hardcore shit. A 2wd lifted for looks that will never see dirt is ghey.
