Your a 'Ford Lover'. Why in the hell would you contimplate leaf springs in the front of a 79 Bronco?...Oh, I get it, you can't figure out how to keep the coils/radius arms when installing the 60. Hint...Get a set of Duff's aftermarket C-bush wedges and put them on the 60.

for all you jackasses that want to talk shit im fully aware of how to keep my radius arms if i wanted,but they break along with track bars that break and anyone knows a rig with leafs that is propperley set up will out flex a rig with coil springs any day. and to you jopes i wouldnt talk any shit have you looked at your rig lately especialy those tires you had on that thing last time i was at the con what a joke you blew two of them on the way out. This board is getting rediculious you cant even ask a simple question without people talking shit. :flipoff2: :flipoff2: :flipoff2: :flipoff2:

I look @ my rig every day. :flipoff2:


the reason why the tires failed is they were rotted out. live and learn but now there are nice new iroks on there. :flipoff2:

Yep. I've seen this done with full hydro, or how 'bout a box from a '78 F150 Supercab? I think it was push/pull kinda like Chevy. 'Course I dunno if you could get the appropriate arm on your driver's side knuckle.

EDIT: either than that, its' an easy swap. Box the framehorns, get the front/front hangers from a late '70s F250 (or just make them out of square tube, 4x4 x .250 works great for 3" springs), burn a hole for the shackle pivot (shackle straddles the frame), voila you're done. Works because your framerails are basically straight

yeah i was hoping not to have to go to full hydro as i would still like to be able to drive it on the street every once in awhile but if i have to then thats what will happen. On the box you were talking about is that off a 2 wheel drive or four wheel drive truck? any help would be appreciated thanks
