Help with lowering Coil Buckets

Any one have any experence to share? My buddy just put 39.5 Boggers on his 92 F-150 (SAS, 9 inch suspention lift, 3 inch body lift) The Boggers rub on the fender and he would like to avoild cutting the fenders. He is thinking either a 3" coil spacer or 12" coils. I think he could just lower his buckets 3" and weld some 3x3 steel tube to the frame behind the buckets. What do y'all think?

This guy did that for his 78 Bronco


I built him a huge crossmember for the lower half of the towers


I used 3x4x3/8" angle iron with 2x2x3/16" sqaure tube. I'm still waiting for pictures of it installed. BTW, have you got any recent pictures of yours? Last I read anywhere, you only had the front Rockwell installed. I'm curious to know how the rest of it turned out

Actualy it was the rear Rockwell installed. I have been a sorry SOB for the past 6 months and have had the front of the Bronco sitting on jack stands with the front axle laying on the ground. I finally got in gear and two weeks ago I fabed up some coil mounts for the front springs (9" superlift coils, and the mounts raise the spring 8" from the top of the axle"). I have the DOM tubing for the links sitting on my back porch, but I don't have any rod ends yet. It seems every one around here who is working on there truck is just about to the point of getting it right, and here I am sitting on my behind, it makes for good motivation so any day now I am gonna start working on it again. When I get somewhere I will post pics.

Thanks for asking and thanks for your pics
