BTW; I own a '94 Bronco.
TTB has its place, so it would depend on what your end goal is.

Good point.


Wants:
1) 37+"X12.5+" tires
2) One ton brakes
3) Characteristics of a straight axle while offroading.
4) Simple front axle suspension set up.
5) Axle shaft strength to handle 100+:1 gears with said 37+" tires.
6) WMS to WMS width without spacers.

It is much better. To me there was definitely a shock issue or just a shock that didn't suit my taste. I did a video before the shock swap and I need to make one in the same area to see if the difference can be seen. Best way to describe it was 1-2" of shock travel with no shock input. The springs were in charge and it had what felt like a constant little bounce going on(very slight but drove me nuts) Now the shocks are doing their job. I was able to drop the bags to 20 psi and the whole thing is close.

Cool. So which shocks did you specifically go with? The bronco specific bilsteins?

Front 24-065283
Rear 24-185530

I think the fronts are universal and the rears are specific(I could be wrong about that)
